Runners (Chicken Soup Giveaway)

The Chicken Soup for the Soul writers have teamed up with ultramarathoner, Dean Karnazes to share a new collection of inspiring stories for runners, and I have a copy for a reader!

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners: 101 Inspirational Stories of Energy, Endurance, and EndorphinsWe all tend to know someone who runs-for the self-satisfying feeling of knowing they are doing something wonderful for their health and bodies, and really all-around well-being.  This book may be for them!

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners, is subtitled "101 Inspirational Stories of Energy, Endurance, and Endorphins.  I really like that it's not a random collection of stories.  The chapters are appropriately categorized, too.

A list of the chapters:
Starting Out
Running Therapy
Camaraderies
Comebacks
Everyday Adventures
Family Ties
A Step at a Time
Fortitude
Interesting Places
Moving on to Triathlons

Any Chicken Soup book is recommended for someone looking for some inspiration, and this is the one for Runners!  Authors are everyday joggers and even Olympians.  You can see upcoming titles at the CSFTS website!

I have a copy to give away to a reader!

My favorite CSFTS book is the one for writers, and also the one for expecting mothers which I read when I was pregnant and laughed so hard.
Thanks for asking!
