Free Book Giveaway

Excuses. Who doesn't have them? You use a gazillion excuses to not go for a run or to cut your run short. Coach Dean hears millions of excuses and captured them in a book. There are 200+ excuses that you'll associate with or consider using yourself. The book doesn't only talk about excuses but it also talks about overcoming the excuses and has stories where everyday runners have overcome their excuses.

This book is extra special to me because not only did I get to add some of my own excuses, I also was a contributor of one of the stories and helped edit the book.

Coach Dean has agreed to giveaway one of his books on my blog. "Coach I Didn't Run Because...Excuses Not to Run and How to Overcome Them.

Thanks Coach Dean!

Well, unlike Tall Mom I'm an ALL excuses kind of girl. Still new to running part of my challenge is getting the ME out of my head. My biggest excuse? Tired. Though I am slowly starting to realize the abundance of energy that comes from running when tired...
