Girls Sweat! ... and that's sweet! Book Review & Giveaway

Back in December, Little Diva, Little Dude and I had a chance to review Pellie Runs a Marathon and Coco Loves to Tri. Both children's books are written by the wonderful Michele Bredice Craemer. You can read about our experience HERE (I hope that you will check this out ... this was before I had an extensive following on my blog. The books are great1).



A couple of months ago, Michele contacted me again and alerted me that her new book, Girls Sweat! ... and that's sweet! would be released soon. I received my copy soon after.



You can check out Michele Bredice Craemer's website HERE.

I loved receiving my SIGNED copy ...
tied in a leopard print bow!


Girls Sweat! is great for women, mothers and their daughters. Through the book, a runner learns about mental toughness, strength and happiness through her heart and "soles".
Michele dedicates this book to "girls and women who dream, sweat and achieve".



The book has beautiful, simple messages throughout. The messages and quotes touch on girl power, balance, goal-setting, visualizing ... and so much more. The book has motivational pictures and a look at women running, training and achieving their goals.
As I read through the book, I was ready out on my next run ... even to my treadmill for six miles, in my dreary basement with the kiddos.
The next time you need motivation, I hope that you will turn to this book. You will definitely find motivation here.
Want your signed copy?!?!?!

  16. Visited Michelle's site, and noticed that she has given quite a few talks at very prestigious venues-even Harvard! She sounds like a very inspirational woman, and I would love to read this book. It sounds like something I could give to my running girlfriends and turn to for motivation time and time again.

  26. I guess I didn't realize there were books for kids about running (not that that should be shocking; there are kid books on everything) - that's cool. I'd love to find some to read to my boys.
