I'm a Winner... AGAIN!

Heck, I think I should pack up my bags and head out to Vegas... I'm on a winning streak, here. I just got an email from Amy at the Runners' Lounge informing me I am one of the winners of the book, Running from the Devil by Jamie Freveletti.

In order to win the book, I had to finish one of three sentences about moms and running. I chose to finish "Running and motherhood are a lot alike..."

I finished it this way:

Running and motherhood are a lot alike... both push you beyond limits you never thought you could reach. Both come with good days and bad days. Both make you question your sanity. Both come hand-in-hand with hurt. Mostly, both result in rewards far greater than ever expected.

I don't know if the winners were drawn randomly or if they actually read what people wrote. Either way, I don't care... I've wanted to read this book ever since I read about it on another blogger's site (I just can't remember who wrote about it... anyone else know?). Yay, me!

First the Online Shoes certificate and now this. I rarely win anything... maybe my luck is changing.

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms out there! I hope your day was as wonderful as mine.

I'm feeling pretty good today, post-longest-run-ever. I'm sore in my legs, but I am assuming that comes with the territory. My knee hurts but not as much as it was hurting a few weeks ago.

I have so many blogs to catch up on! Better start reading...
