50/50 Draw!!

Well its time for me to pass on the 50/50 book to let it travel some more miles. This awesome idea was piloted by Ted, and has a few simple rules:

1. Respond to my post in order to be the next in line to read the book.

2. I will mail the book to you.
3. Read the book.
4. After reading the book, create a post in your blog and find out who wants to be next in line to read the book.
5. Ship the book to the next blogger.
6. You must take a picture of yourself with the book.
7. Write a small comment of what you think of the book in it.
8. Ship the book to the next blogger.
9. Lastly, you must use any form of human power (i.e, walk, run, skateboarding, bike) in order to take the book to the post office. Exception: If you live very far to the Post Office, use car.
HAVE FUN !!!!


I will promise the book will be jogged by yours truly to the my local post office. I must also add that this book is a MUST READ motivator. Here is my picture of the book (taken at the Philadelphia airport after the marathon)


So go on, respond to this post FIRST, and I'll be in touch to mail you the book. Thanks to Ted for this great opportunity!

Hi Marci -

Thanks for posting this. I know of the book but I don't have a copy. Sonia - will you please let me know when we can post on your blog to get it? I'll gladly let you know too Lisa since you were before me. And if you don't get it SuperDave, I'll let you know also if you don't know before me.

Thanks again!

Chic Runner said...

dang it! I wanted to read it! :/ I am reading his first book and love it! :) Oh well. I will have to wait for the next person!

My copy is so dog-eared I would be ashamed to send it to anybody. When you figure in the travel time on the bus, it is truly amazing what Dean was able to do.

Best of luck with your running.

Thanks for the update. Glad you had a great opportunity to read it. I think its KUDOS that you read while you did the Philadelphia Marathon.

Glad to see the book is on the move !!!
