Pass It On

The deadline for the Runners' Lounge book project is rapidly approaching. When Tom and Amy announced the project, everybody and her sister said, "Wow, cool! Count me in!"

I am pretty sure that not all of you have submitted yet.

It is time to get cracking. Write your submission. Come on, it's only 600 words, which is basically the literary equivalent to an easy three. Be part of something special.

But I'm going to ask you to do a little bit more.

Choose five friends and tell them about the project.

Let's get as many people as we can to contribute to the book!

And because I'm putting my money where my mouth is, I have already told five people about the project: my very talented writer friend, who ran her first marathon a few years ago because it was the hardest thing she could think of to do; my friend who I never in a million years thought could run a mile, yet just ran his first marathon; my writer/runner brother; one of my favorite bloggers; a friend who is a college student, humor writer, and runner; and a college friend that I recently reconnected with - and discovered was a runner.

I did it, and so can you! Pass it on!

I'm not making any promises, since I'm deep in the heart of GRE studying. But this does sound intriguing :)

I don't think I know enough to submit something, but I've offered to help with the editing. :)
