Boston Marathon Book Giveaway


GIVEAWAY!


It is a book called The story of Johnny Kelley, Boston's Marathon Man.  I gave one of those in January and now that the Boston Marathon is less than a month away time to give the second copy to one of you!!!
"Johnny Kelley is Mr. Boston Marathon. Mr. Lewis has painted a loving portrait of this running icon. Mr. Kelley ran 61 Boston Marathons, winning twice and finishing 2nd an astonishing 7 times. The book was originally published while Mr. Kelley was still alive. Mr. Lewis interviewed Mr. Kelley extensively and this adds immeasurably to the story. The book is not only a biography of a great runner but a personal journey through the history of America's Greatest Race. GREAT READ!! "

There are lots of pictures in the book:

Wow, count me in please,

My "Blog Daughter" Marlene and her husband are running their first Boston this year. Wouldn't that make an awesome gift for them? I'm going to look it up on Chapters right now!

I'm not sure that I want to win because looking at it will probably make me really want to run a marathon, and my knees really can't handle a full. Heck just watching the LA marathon sent the desire running through me.
