The satisfied loser, mums, free book and thanks


First of all, I would like to say thank you to all the amazing mums out there inside the blogosphere and outside. You will never find a higher paying job ladies!

Happy Mother’s Day!


And now for the results of my marathon. Well, I made it across the finish line second, 3.8 seconds behind the leader. I was a bit disappointed in me for not getting first, but I crossed the finish line and in the end I suppose that is what is important.

So glad to not be training early this morning.  I will be taking part in another one at the beginning of Fall and am also planning a bike ride from Nevada to Oregon next spring.


I wanted to thank everyone for their support and well wishes during my training and participation in this event.  You all kept me going when I was so ready to give it all up! I am so lucky to have you all in my life:)

If you have not caught it yet, Green Embers did a fabulous tribute to mums everywhere:

If You would like to get a great free fantasy book you can share with mum this weekend, here is some info for you:

Roy Huff’s Fantasy ebook, Everville: The First Pillar  is free today through the 16th.  Here is the link: I read this book earlier this year and was impressed with it!

Okay, so happy Mum’s Day everyone! Hope it is lovely for all of you. Tomorrow we will return to our regularly scheduled program of blogger of the week and books, books and more books. Also–a quick apology for not getting to your posts the last few days. I will work hard this week to get up so I don’t miss anything important. XOXO

  1. Yaay! Congrats 😀 Second is still a win from where I come from. Speaking of which, we usually celebrate Mother’s day on the 21st of March, I have no idea why, or why it is celebrated today on Google. But anyhow, Happy Mother’s day to the best mother figure I’ve known so far! You’re an everlasting inspiration, go on and on. 🙂


  2. Congratulations! Just running a marathon is incredible! Happy Mother’s day, and congrats again. Being a mom and running a marathon are two (three, four, five) amazing accomplishments. Feel proud!


  3. Woman! Second?!?! That is amazing! I’d come in second AFTER last! I can only dream to accomplish what you have after everything…you give me hope and courage to keep going! Thank you! Love you!
