Run like a Girl and a Giveaway Basket... just another Monday =)

First and foremost, I can't wait to recommend this book. Run Like a Girl by Mina Samuels. Here are a few words that describe how I felt while reading it: Inspired, happy, captivated and peaceful. This book touches on some of the "hurdles" that we as women have had to overcome for equality in sports. It reminds you how the confidence you build in your sports can and most likely, (whether you realize it or not) play a role in your daily life. A few topics she covers within its pages are: the everlasting chore of finding balance, enjoying camaraderie, finding peace, everlasting friendships and as she calls it, "Chicking the Boys" =). There are numerous stories of women who have used their sports to motivate and challenge themselves to move out of there comfort zone. In the bottom of the first page of the Introduction she writes,

In the words of the French philosopher and writer, Adre Gide, "[Wo]man cannot discover new oceans unless [s]he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."

I really liked this book and I highly recommend it. I was given this book for free but I promise that this opinion is entirely my own. I am always hankering for a good inspiring book to read and I really feel like she nailed it.
