Giveaway: Signed Copy of The Runner's Guide to the Meaning of Life



I'm so incredibly excited to post my very first giveaway! It's like my blog has finally come of age!

When I was at the Lehigh Valley Half Marathon Expo, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Runner's World editor Amby Burfoot. He won the 1968 Boston Marathon (is time was 2:22:17), and has been working at Runner's World since 1978.

The giveaway is for a signed copy of Amby's book, The Runner's Guide to the Meaning of Life that I picked up at the Expo and had Amby sign for one of my readers! This book contains Amby Burfoot's lessons from his lifetime of running. It is meant to be inspirational and spiritual.
How to enter the contest. Please leave a comment for each one of these that you do, and do as many of them as you like!:
  1. (mandatory) Leave me a comment to let me know what inspires you to run.
  2. (optional) Become a follower of my blog by clicking the "Follow" link on the right hand column, or let me know that you are already a follower.
  3. (optional) Become a fan of mine (or I guess it's "Like" now) on Facebook by going here or clicking on the button on the left column, or let me know you're already a fan.
  4. (optional) Add my blog to your blogroll on your blog, and leave me a comment to let me know you did (provide a link if you want).
  5. (optional) Tell others about this giveaway on Twitter, Facebook, or on your blog, and let me know that you did by leaving a comment to tell me about it! (provide a link if you'd like)

I will choose a winner on Friday, May 14. So, be sure to participate before then!

I'm inspired by those runners that are in their twilight years but still out there moving. I used to always see a woman in her 80's who still competed in the senior olympics during my long runs and that always inspired me to keep going when the going got tough!

I am inspired to run by the way my body responds when I give it a challenge. At first, it didn't like the fact that I was moving, but now it's as if my body craves that movement and needs to run.

Tricia said...

Everytime I run or spectate a race I am inspired by the people of all shapes/sizes/ages out there doing their thing. :)

I run because everytime I go it's a challenge: a faster pace, a farther distance, etc. And it's fun!

My inspiration to run is my family. I'm currently trying to lose weight, get fit, and be healthy so that I can be around for my wife and kids for years to come.

I'm inspired to run because it allows me to center myself, and connect with other runners!

bobbie said...

I was inspired to run by my running buddy being 68yrs old! If he can do it why can't I?! Also by watching biggest loser on tv, if those people can go from the shape they were in to running a whole marathon at the end of the season, why can't I??!! I don't see whole marathon plans in my future but I did do a half!!
