Motivational Monday and my first ever give away!!!

I found today's motivational quote in one of the books I purchased at Borders last week.  It's called live now, it's just a book with little sweet messages.  When I seen this page, I really liked it.  Life is totally what we make of it.  If we wake up thinking "today is going to be a bad day", more than likely, your day is bad.  If we wake up thinking "today is going to be a great day", your day usually is great!  Last week when I went to Borders they were closing and everything was 80%-90% off.  I bought a cover for my Cruz, live now (message book), and Runner's World Best Getting Started.  The Cruz cover was originally 39.99, live now was 14.99 and Runner's World was 9.95.  My total came to $6 and some change!! YIPEE....that's what I call a bargain! 

When I got home from Louisville, I checked the mail and had 3 other books that I purchased from Amazon in the mail.  Run Like a Girl How Strong Women Make Happy Lives, The Non Runner's Marathon Guide For Women - get off your butt and on with your training, and Runner's World - Complete Book of Women's Running - the best advice to get started, stay motivated, lose weight, run injury-free, be safe, and train for any distance.   The Run Like a Girl book idea came from (Just) Trying is for Little Girls, she actually had this as a give away and I may do this once I have finished reading the book. 

I'm going to have my first Give Away

I'm going to Give Away a copy of Runner's World Best - Getting Started book.  This book had useful tips about cross-training, setting goals, staying injury-free, and staying motivated.  It's an easy read.
