Three Things Thursday

1. Last night I finished 50/50. I barely put it down after starting it the previous day. Believe it or not, I had never even heard of Dean until he was introduced to me via the running community, and what an amazing story. I loved how the book was simultaneously motivational and informational, peppered with training tips, nutritional advice and random tidbits. I'm pretty sure I was one of the few who still had not read it, but if anyone out there is still missing out, you must read this book! (Thanks again, Melanie!)




2. You may recall that I was the December winner of free shoes from Running Shoes Reviews. I received my Adidas AdiSTAR's last week. Check these out!



Thanks Liah!


3. The Chic Runner is giving away a copy of Eat This Not That. Click here to check it out and enter your name.

Great three things :)

Chic Runner said...

Nice shoes and thanks for the shoutout! :) I love Dean, he's like a maniac! I also heard there is another guy out there, Dean Razenstalalkdflajd something like that. It's super good and more about marathons and not so much personal.

J said...

Those shoes are so pretty! I loved the book too, especially the random tidbits he put in it!

TNTcoach Ken said...

Now I have to get off my butt and start reading the book. I've had it since last year!

I was surprised how much I liked the book--and Dean too.

Those are some flyyy shoes! I have heard of Dean but want to read the book.

lindsay said...

glad you enjoyed the book and hooray for new shoes! those will be ready and waiting for when you are able to run again, not that you'll need any additional motivation to go run by then :)
