And the lucky recipient

of the Travelling Book, 50 / 50 is Marci, from Ramblings of a Running Addict. Many of the first of my blog reader's had already read or already have the book, so Marci, just to clarify, that is how you were the winner.

Just to enlighten some of you who may not know or remember, Ted, from Ted's Running Journal, (who has apparently "Gone Fishing" for the moment, graciously donated his book 50 / 50 written by Dean Karnazes to other bloggers to read, then pass along to others to enjoy and we would follow its adventures across the globe.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to receive the book and read through it (in my spare time). Although, I must admit, Dean is not that well known in the "Great White North" as he is in the "South of the Border", but because we are all family in this crazy running world, it was a pleasure and an honour to be able to read about this incredible human and all the good he has done for children with his running and his time.

So, now the book is "on the road again", Marci, you will need to contact me with your coordinates so I can send this book on its journey.

As for the running front for me, well, I get a few runs in right now when I can. Life is extremely busy at work, (sigh), and as with starting any new business, well, lets just say that is very busy too!

Since I'm robbing company time right now, I'd be go....

Have a great week everybody!!

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Lily

ROFLMAO! I still count as the "Great White North" right? It's cold like that, why not? LOL

Marci said...

Oh, I get it now. Very cool idea.

Man, I've been out of touch! I have to read that book sometime, though probably after my course is finished since I shouldn't add more procrastination motivations right now... Marci is a most worthy recipient of the book, that's for sure!

Enjoy, Marci!

You are not robbing company time - you are doing important community service work for all of us. They should pay you extra. ;-)

Great idea for the traveling book. Nice job getting your run in with your schedule. I need you to rub off on me so I quit making excuses. Ha!

Save some blogger time for us Lily! Sometimes life really does get in the way :) But always keep on running!!

I love the idea of a travelling book for runners - our own version of Bookcrossing! I should do that with my copy of ChiRunning. Did you put your name and location somewhere in the book, so people can see where it has been?

I have a bunch of good and not so good running books here that deserve a better fate than a reader-less garage shelf. If I gave them to Goodwill they will likely end up in the trash so there has to be a better way.

Well, we call Michigan the "great white north" also. So, you would be in the "great white norther" I guess.

Love the traveling book idea! What a great way to get out some great reading and do a bit of recycling! :)

I am back. I am done with the fishing. Congrats on finishing the book. You cracked me up when you refer us as "South of the Border".
Glad to see the book is "on the road again".....
