Giveaway #3 Feeds the Soul

The following is a review and giveaway from College Girl. She often hits my mail and takes the items she so desires....but that is OK. The Chicken Soup for the Soul series has been one of her favorites since she was quite young. So she was pouncing on the latest book. So now here is College Girl.

People can get motivated to do all kinds of things for all sorts of reasons. Some give up a few hours' sleep in favor of healthy exercise. Some give up jobs to pursue a dream. Some go out on a limb to turn
strangers into friends. All these stories and many more are shared in a new book in the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners
features 101 stories from amateur and expert athletes, beginners and old hands, weekend joggers and Olympic marathoners. There are tales of overcoming setbacks, of running for self, and of running for others. From the moment I opened this book and began reading the tales shared so freely, I was hooked. I couldn't put the book down; I wanted to read more. Each story told me about marathons and injuries, setbacks and goals. I'm still astounded by people who can run marathons, who get out of bed at ungodly hours just to exercise - and even look forward to it! For all my determination, I haven't quite managed that yet. However, with this book in hand, I'm sure I'll have a lot more determination to set and even surpass my own goals.

I would recommend this book to everyone, runners or not. I myself am only a walker at this point, but reading about other people setting and reaching their own goals is a message than can be used in every area of life. The stories are inspiring and quick to read and the messages behind them stay with you long after the book has been closed.
