Happy Birthday to me. :) Hello 34! I kicked off my birthday but running 6x800M intervals at a 7:19 pace, with 200M recovery intervals in between (total of five miles). Kicked my butt and felt great. Then I did my strength training and now I have tomorrow off to rest up for my 30 miles I need to get done this weekend. Woo hoo!
Today is the day I give away my surprise book. Thanks to all of you who played along with my IPOD playlist game. The most picked on songs were definitely Beach Boys' Barbara Ann and Phil Collins' Dance into the Light. I did get lots of great ideas for songs to add to my playlist. Thanks again to all of you who played. :)
Now for the prize! The book I am giving away is "Once a Runner" by John L. Parker Jr. It is a novel about a runner trying to become a champion and it is such a great read. I really, really enjoyed this book. Dave Langlais from Runner's World said that "Once a Runner" is, "The best piece of running fiction around. Beg, borrow, or buy a copy and you'll never need another motivator." Sounds fun, right? Anyone else out there ever read it?
Random.org chose lucky #6 as my winner which is Colleen of Cupcake Nation! Colleen, send me an email at fullhousemom at g mail dot com and I will get your book out to you. congrats!
Hope you all are having a great day. More soon!
