The reasons we run are as numerous as the miles we collectively log. We run for our health, for a much-anticipated race on our calendars, for our sanity (oh, for our sanity), for our family and loved ones who support us, for the sheer joy of a warm breeze touching our skin during a run on a spring afternoon. The list goes on and on, and in the past week, during my Tales From Another Mother Runner book giveaway, many of you shared your reasons for hitting the road and trails — and how this sport has positively impacted your life.

I so enjoyed reading your comments. I never tire of hearing someone’s running journey.

I have one copy of this just-released book to give away — a book that features essays by myself and 21 other mother runners, as well as loads of other inspiring, funny and helpful stories from the AMR tribe — and reader Kristen M. is the winner. Here’s Kristen’s comment, which was chosen at random:

Running is how I re-charge and test my limits. I would have never imagined at age 38, with three kids, that I’d be running my first marathon! I give credit to the mother runner tribe for helping me believe in myself.

Congratulations, Kristen! (What marathon are you running?? We all want to know!) Please email me at michiganrunnergirl [at] gmail [dot] com to claim your prize.

Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to enter this giveaway. I wish I had copies to give to you all! Order your copy here »
