Chicken Soup for Soul- Runners Giveway

Saw this book about a month ago and figured I like chicken soup books and I like running stories, so great combo.

About the Book: "When runners aren’t running, they are talking about running, planning their next run, shopping for running… This book contains 101 stories from everyday and famous runners… telling their stories to other runners… about how running has improved their lives, recovering from injuries, challenging themselves, and includes amazing stories of marathons, camaraderie, and the natural high that comes from this popular sport. Plenty of stories for triathletes too, covering swimming and cycling."

Whether you're a fan of running, or another sport, its motivating to see other's dedication to their goals and what they're willing to go through to achieve them. Currently my desire to excel is enough motivation for me, but on my off days its nice to just be able to pick up this bad boy and read a few excerpts to get me back on track. 
So for all those out there that like to read, or maybe need a little push in the right direction, I decided to get another copy and give one away to my readers.
