While Kara Goucher was pregnant and taking it easy but still probably running 50 miles a week, she wrote a book Kara Goucher's Running for Women: From First Steps to Marathons. This book is being released on Tuesday, April 5th. The Amazon product description is

It looks like it is a great beginners book but the psychological setback may prove to be interesting. I'll most likely buy it for $10.95 (although I would swear yesterday the price showed $9 something.)
Now we all know that besides talking about poop, Adam LOVES Kara Goucher and has googly eyes for her and turns into a whimpering,drooling puppy dog about to get a doggy treat when he even hears the name "Kara". So the big question is will Adam buy Kara's book on women's running? What do you think? Vote below.
Note: me and the blogger poll have NOT had fun. I would get it all set up and vote and then all the voting buttons would go away. Darn. I found Vizu and and so far so good. Results of the poll are displayed after voting.
