Spreading the word for "Run Like a Mother" Book tour in Seattle. Please attend one of the events if you can!!! I am proud to be quoted 4 times in the book :) Check out the info from one of the Authors below:

Hi Seattle folks--

I'm hoping you can spread the word among your friends and co-workers that I'm going to be in Seattle/Bellingham/Bellevue promoting my new book, RUN LIKE A MOTHER: How to Get Moving — and Not Lose Your Family, Job or Sanity.

It's a really fun, funny compilation of essays, tips, and motivational thoughts -- nothing too hardcore or serious but lots to get you psyched up, whether you aspire to run 3 miles or a marathon.

There are two Seattle events planned around the book: A 7 p.m. reading on Thursday, April 8 at Ravenna Third Place Books at 6504 20th Ave., Seattle 98115, then a short run from Super Jock N Jill the next morning (Friday, April 9) at 9:30 a.m. (7210 E. Greenlake Dr. N., Seattle, WA 98115). The run is a super easy, go-at-your-own-pace 3 miler.

There will be LOTS OF FREE STUFF given out at the run! Including: PowerBars, socks, water bottles, KT Tape, a Brooks goodie bag, and Lara Bars. And you can buy adorable Run Like a Mother T-shirts. To see what the tees look like, go to the RLAM Facebook page -- Run Like a Mother: The Book.

Then I'm headed to Bellingham for reading and same sort of run--reading is at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 10 at Village Books at 1200 11th St., Bellingham, WA 98225. The fun fun is at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 11 from Fairhaven Runners, 1209 11th St., Bellingham, WA 98225.

I'm also selling and signing books at the Title Nine store at 10237 Main St., Bellevue, WA 98004 on Sunday, April 11 from 3-5 p.m.

To get folks fired up, check out the Run Like a Mother video, at

Please tell your women-runner friends (and Dads looking for Mother's Day gifts!) about the events.

Many thanks,
