I was super excited to receive this next Chicken Soup book that I am giving away because as I get healthier, I would like to start running. I am not sure there is any better exercise for the average person to help them get in shape and toned than to run!
When runners aren't running, they are talking about running, planning their next run, shopping for running. This book contains 101 stories from runners, telling their stories to other runners about. running — how it has changed their lives, their bodies, and their spirits. Runners will love these inspirational stories of fellow runners challenging themselves, recovering from injuries, and staying motivated. Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners also includes amazing stories of marathons, camaraderie, and the natural high that comes from this popular sport. It holds plenty of stories for triathletes too, covering swimming and cycling.
The book is divided into 10 sections, including Starting Out, Family Ties, Fortitude, Moving on to Triathlons, and more. Taking a Leap of Faith caught my eye because of the title. Like the person in the story, I just need to take the leap and start! Nowhere to Go is a hilarious story about a man who has to pee and literally has nowhere he can go. The Broken Toe is a story about a man who runs a marathon with a broken toe. All I can say is wow!
I am pleased to offer a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners - 101 Inspirational Stories of Energy, Endurance, and Endorphins to 3 winners.

Hi there. I would love a copy of the book and I am a new follower. I started running last year and, honestly, it still kills me but I love how it makes me feel afterwards! I think the book would be a very interesting read.
