She gasped and hugged me and wished me luck and asked if I had found some friends—warmth and kindness radiated from her. She and Sarah graciously took some photos with me as well as signed my copy of Train Like a Mother. The beauty and energy that was that evening with all the other BAMRs (Badass Mother Runners) reminded me of Pam and of our friendship. The things that Sarah and Dimity talk about with “The Tribe” are the things that I speak to Pam about—they are the basis of our friendship. It’s about the real-ness of who we are as moms and women. We see each other for what we really are—ladies who are just trying to get by. There are no apologies needed; no need to put on a show and try to be something we are not. We make mistakes. We’re human. We want to live a healthy and happy life. And most importantly, we support and love each other.
As a thank you to all of you, the Fit Moms of the world out there, I’d like to do a small giveaway as a thank you all of you who have made these past two years possible for us. We have lots in the plans for our future if you stick with us. So as a thank you, I’m giving away a copy of one of my favorite books by Sarah and Dimity—Train Like a Mother. It’s training season for me and many of you runners out there—whether it’s for your first race or twentieth. Whether it is for a 5k just to finish or a marathon to “prove it”…this book is a great training guide and read in general. My own personal copy is underlined and annotated. I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did and that you will get much use out of it as well. So, please review the Rafflecopter rules below and enter, better yet….tell a friend to enter as well!
We thank you for being a part of the Fit Moms and Full Plates readership—it means a lot to both myself and Pam. And to Pam—thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the friend that you are—I owe you much gratitude.
NOTE: I am not being compensated in any way for this giveaway. I have purchased this book with my own funds and am giving it away purely because I love the book and want to share my enjoyment of it.
