Heart And Sole 26.2 book review & giveaway
Who’s doing the Friday dance with me? What are your plans for the weekend? I have no idea what we’re up to, but I’m looking forward to bumming around with Mike and making fun of him. I’m a peach.
Let’s kick off the weekend with a book review and giveaway, shall we!
And yes, I read in the tub, doesn’t everybody?
I’m not much of a reader unless it involves magazines, and don’t plan on running a marathon anytime soon, but this book is all about running. And we all know running’s my favorite and I’m so happy I took the time to dive in. It’s a fast read for folks like me.
I thought it was a fantastic read for runners of all levels, especially beginners. I loved reading how 26 non-super human normal people like you & I trained their butts off, overcame injures, battled weather and pretty much anything training throws at you to cross the finish line of their first marathon. You will definitely be inspired!
The other really cool thing about this book is that Melinda offers relatable, useful tips along the way from her expertise and experience. She has multiple marathons under her belt and is also a Boston qualifier.
Bam wants you to know that he enjoyed reading it too but wishes they would have suggested a belly rub, a nap in the sun and some cookies for recovery.
I really enjoyed the book and thought you guys would too, so I asked Melinda’s team if they would be willing to do a giveaway. I was stoked they agreed! So one lucky winner will score signed paperback copies of “Heart and Sole” and Melinda’s other book, “Eat In, Not Out”. Plus a 30 minute consultation to do an assessment of a your one week “healthy diary” (e.g., food/fitness/etc). How cool is that!?
All you have to do is leave a comment sharing your best running tips and/or advice!!
Extra entries if you share this giveaway with your social media friends, blog or write it in the sky. Be sure to hop back over here & let me know.
**Edited because this blonde is clearly under caffeinated and forgot to add the giveaway will end Tuesday August 13 and the winner will be announced the following day.**
