Dead Running Giveaway

So....I'm usually not into letting people write on my blog. I mean, in two years of posting, I've allowed only one guest post. One. And that was my sister who's story about an unspoken running rule was so funny it just had to be shared and in her own words. But when I got contacted about this unbelievably AWESOME giveaway that author, Cami Checketts, is running to launch her new book, Dead Running, it was just too good to pass on. Plus, I'm pretty sure you all would have smacked me up side the head had you found out I did pass. And since I don't like being smacked, I really had no other choice. ;-) Enjoy the giveaway and make sure you read all the way to the end, because I'm tacking on a few prizes of my own that will be EXCLUSIVE to those of you who enter the contest here! Without further ado, guest post #2...

'Til next time...

P.S. If you're interested in my thoughts on DEAD RUNNING, be sure to stop by next week. I'm reading it right now. Not that it's going to take me a week to read, it's a nail biter, one of those "I REALLY don't want to put this book down, but if I don't my kids are gonna own me tomorrow" sort of books. I'm probably going to have it knocked off in the next couple of days though. It's just the whole getting time to write the post that's the trouble. 

P.P.S. For the record, I do not usually write in pink. I realize it's not so easy on the eyes.

I'm not a running mom, but recently have begun walking 5K events with my husband and son. We are trying to promote healthy lifestyles and living by example. We just completed a Filthy 5K, and we all loved it. My 14 son is addicted to them and wants to do the Rock the World event coming to Lansing, Michigan.
