Sarah and I read proofs of Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line - and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity about 8,000 times. Or at least it felt like that. After about the third time of taking a magnifying glass to the text, which we'd already read, edited, read, edited, read, edited many times, I think our eyes just glazed over. Either that, or she trusted I was eagle-eyeing the training plans--and I was doing the same.
The result? A few typos. (Yeah, I know: like that's a huge surprise. And guess what? Sometimes we raise our voices at our kids, too.) The most notable ones were in the Half-Marathon: Finish It plan, so we wanted to make amends as soon as possible. We apologize if we threw any of you off; the mistakes weren't huge, but were a little confusing.
Which is why we're giving it to all of you, whether or not you bought Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line - and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity, right here as a .pdf, which will open in a new window when you click on the link to you can download.
We figure one of two things:
1. If you own the book, you can print it out, staple it, fold it, and shove it in the back for when you're ready to finish a half-marathon.
2. If you haven't gone orange on us yet, maybe seeing this innovative plan for busy people and designed by coach extraordinaire Christine Hinton will tip you over the edge. (Look at the coffee cups! So cute! And look at how smart and doable this plan is! And there are fun workouts? What are those? I guess I'll have to buy TLAM and find out!)
So consider this a random surprise for June 12th. Enjoy and happy Tuesday!
We've heard from some of you that have followed the plans, but are always open to feedback, improvements, and, of course, a compliment. If you have any stories or corrections or ideas, please feel free to pipe up in the comments below. Thanks!
