Virtual Party entries are already rolling in!

I've been gone for a few days longer than usual because I've been going non-stop on a multitude of projects:

- Tomorrow is the America's Kids Run Expo in Spokane
- The in-person Launch Party is Friday, May 9th
- I've been lining up some amazing radio interviews over the next few months (stay tuned for details when they're set!)
- grocery shopping (truly a project)
- volunteering to help with the Girls on the Run of Puget Sound auction (May 8th)
- cleaning the house so that it has a chance while I'm gone for the expo this weekend
- reading books with my daughter who has JUST discovered that books have more to offer than corners for chewing - hooray! In fact, this kid is in LOVE with books. It makes me laugh now to think that I was worried that she'd not have any interest in books!

- keeping my calm with my son who must be having a growth spurt or something because he's acting a bit out of sorts (is there a full moon, maybe?). I'm trying to be compassionate and understanding - which is consuming at least 70% of my energy these days!

As for the Launch for We Are Girls Who Love to Run, I'm excited to announce that I've already received a recipe (it is a yummy one - I know, I've tried it!) and two inspirational stories about why these women love to walk and run. I can't wait to add YOUR photo/story/recipe to the entry mix so that YOU have a chance to WIN A COPY of We Are Girls Who Love to Run! Send your entries as soon as you've got 'em ready, because I'm working to compile 'em to share with everyone the week of May 5th. And, don't be shy or greedy - share the fun with your friends!

Happy running (or walking, skipping, galloping, pedaling, swimming, crawling, hiking . . . sun saluting . . .), everyone!

Congratulations on the launch of your book! Sounds like a great project and it is wonderful to share the stories. Getting girls involved in running is a wonderful!

Ok, I need to get on my stick and see what I need to do before the party!
