The Runner’s Field Manual Book Giveaway!!!

I figured since it’s finals week and I wont be blogging very much due to studying and what not,
I would have a giveaway!  :)

ETA: Mark Remy found my giveaway and offered to sign the book SO… you will now be receiving “The Runner’s Field Manual” signed by the author if you win! :)

I bought “The Runner’s Field Manual: A tactical (and Practical) Survival Guide)” a while ago, read it and loved it.  It combines humor with a few good guidelines for runners to follow… one of my favorites:

“Large picture windows and glass storefronts allow a passing runner a rare chance to glance over and check himself out while he’s running. (A row of parked cars offers the same thing, but only from the chest up.) If a fellow runner sees you doing this and taunts you, just say that you’re only ‘checking your form,’ and quickly change the subject. Just watch where you’re going – nothing ruins your form faster than running full speed into a lamppost or mailbox”

haha! I’ve totally checked myself out in a window before!  What?! haven’t you?! lol

Here is what Google Product has to say about the book written by Mark Remy and the editors of Runner’s World:

Hot on the heels of 2009’s popular The Runner’s Rule Book comes another indispensable guide from Runner’s WorldMore Boy Scout field guide than Emily Post’s Etiquette, The Runner’s Handbook covers everything from first aid (popping blisters) to navigation (sans GPS) to identifying other species that the roving runner might encounter on the road and much more information that readers will find useful and entertaining, including:-navigating the water stop-mating habits: when runner’s date, marry, and reproduce-how to cross the street (it’s harder than you think)-race waivers: why you’re better off not reading the fine printVeteran runners will nod in recognition at the Handbook’s many lessons, warnings, and instructional asides; newcomers to the sport will appreciate the insider info. Full of charts, illustrations, and more than a few laughs, The Runner’s Handbook is the perfect reference manual for anyone who loves to run—or wants to learn how.
