Sweet! I made it on the cover of
And as a special thanks to all of you who traveled the road with me…
I’ll sign your issue!
After winning London 5k (crazy euphoric blog post can be found here), and announcing my debut at ING NY Marathon for November 6th, Runner’s World decided to put the hot runner models on hold and put me on the cover. I was like “Word?”
I admit it was a dream of mine to be on the cover since I picked up my first issue at age 13 along with my first pair of real running shoes. But can you imagine what a stretch it was for the girl in the photo to the left to imagine this happening?
Yep. I was in high school in this photo.
Canyon Cowboys baby. State champs that year, and freshman got last pick for uniforms (notice the way I make those larges look sexy).
So Here’s the Deal…
Runner’s World November edition is being officially released October 4th. From now until Halloween, if you buy a copy of Runner’s World and mail it to me, I’ll sign it and mail it back!
After you’ve poured over the articles, highlighted your favorite passages, etc, pop the following in an envelope:
- Your proudly purchased Runner’s World’s November issue
- A self-addressed postage paid envelope with $2.08 postage on it (for 1st class mail within the USA).
- Anything else you wish to include (a happy face on a post-it, gucci gift cards, a personal story that will inspire me, a Halloween costume idea, who’s name you want on the magazine, etc).
Do that by October 31, 2011 and I’ll send you your magazine back ASAP (I’ll need some leeway around the time of NY Marathon). If the return envelope and postage aren’t there, your magazine won’t go to waste; I’ll donate it to the local high school kids!
Those of you who know me know I’m not one to make a sales pitch, but I feel I can’t miss this opportunity to make a plug for a project that my friend Ro and I recently finished. We created a training journal over the past year that we really believe will make a difference to female runners of all abilities, and we did it with the help of 12 stunning professional women runners from around the world.
Its an inspirational mind/body tool full of hand drawn illustrations that help you think positively about yourself as you go after your goals. Obviously you don’t have to buy it, but its worth a look!
I look forward to receiving your magazine!

If you’ll be at the marathon, you might be able to save the postage. I’ll keep you updated on the date/time NYRR invites me to the EXPO. I’d be happy to sign your copy of Runner’s World there, as well as Believe I Am Training Journals!
