It’s that time again over here, folks. It’s GIVEAWAY TIME.
A few months ago my awesome friend Ashley, from my Dallas, TX days did an FB poll to giveaway for a book called ‘ Run Like A Girl ‘ by Mina Samuels . I ended up winning the book & boy oh boy am I glad I did. It’s such a motivational , and fun read.
With ‘How Strong Women Make Happy Lives’ as the tag line , it sums up the message of the book in one sentence. As the title suggests, Mina writes the book about running, fitness, and all sorts of sports from a woman’s perspective. ““If I can do a marathon, I can do anything.” ( Katherine Switzer ) She covers intriguing stories about hundreds of women in all kinds of sports…. Although the title implies that the book is geared toward only female runners, the truth is I would absolutely recommend this book to any runner, walker, cyclist, skier, fitness addict, soccer player (or just about any other sport worth mentioning) both male and female. It outlines some of the toughest issues anyone faces in the lifelong battle to stay focused, happy & healthy. ” ”..should we chose to accept it, is to do our best, and let our accomplishments speak for themselves…“
You can FEEL the support on every page. The style is so down-to-earth, but also because the quotes from the hundreds of women interviewed sound like things you’d hear from your best friends… Reinstated by some of the world’s best at what they do, it just amplifies your motivation to succeed that much more. Not to mention the page turning humor. With lines like “Chicking the boys” ”Where have you had road rash?” is cycling code for, “How serious a rider are you?” “Shrinking & Pinking” (When Sport Apparel companies simply shrink down & pink up men’s apprel) & those are just a few
The way Mina wrote this book, is incredible. It flows in such a way that it’s as if she is talking directly to me. Not to mention, this lady knows her stuff! Most of all, Run Like a Girl in it’s entirety is about how running & other sports support one’s happiness, which is near and dear to my heart… Something I completely agree with.
I enjoyed this book SO MUCH that I’ve decided to do a Giveaway. One lucky winner will receive……. ( drum roll please)
