The Summit Seeker book review and #giveaway

Have you heard of Vanessa Runs?  She's this totally bada$$ ultra runner who lives in a small Rialta RV and travels the country, running and writing.  A little while back she reached out to me to tell me about a book she had written and asked if I'd like a copy to review.  The Summit Seeker is Vanessa's voice as she "explores trail and ultra running on an emotional, psychological, and spiritual level."

Vanessa will be the first to tell you this is NOT a book about how to run faster.  It's not a training guide.  It is a memoir about running from a young woman who has learned to use running as a way to escape and heal.  Each chapter reads as it's own essay with topics ranging from home (12 different addresses) to dogs to Steve Jobs to making excuses.

I enjoyed reading Vanessa's perspective and I believe you will too.  Vanessa was very gracious to send me an extra paperback copy for one of my readers!  All you have to do is enter through the Rafflecopter widget below.  If you want, you can also find her book on Amazon here.  It is available in a Kindle edition for $4.99 or paperback for $11.69.

Vanessa blogs here.  You can also follow Vanessa on Facebook, by liking her Facebook page The Summit Seeker, and on Twitter @VanessaRuns

Good luck!  The contest will run until 12:00 am EST on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013.  There are multiple chances to enter, so get to it!
