To celebrate the holiday season and kick off 2020, I’m collaborating with two amazing authors who share my love for running, adventuring, and connecting through sport: Morgan Sjogren and Katie Arnold. The three of us are running a contest on Instagram this week and giving away two signed sets of our books (Outlandish, Running Home, and Run the World). Here’s a quick description of the authors and their books, followed by instructions for entering:
I met Morgan the summer I trained in Mammoth Lakes, and have admired her wild approach to movement and exploration since. Outlandish is Morgan’s “gorgeous guide to a more adventuresome life,” compiled during the two years she spent roaming the Southwest and living out of her Jeep. Recipes and photos included!
Katie is not only a prolific writer whose work consistently resonates with me, but she’s also an elite ultra runner (2018 Leadville 100 Champ!), mother, speaker, and coach. Running Home is Katie’s memoir about family, grief, resilience, and healing through motion—raw, heart wrenching, and inspiring all at once.
The easiest way to enter the contest is to head over to Instagram (specifically here) and follow the instructions in my post. Otherwise, these are the steps:
1. Follow all 3 of us on Instagram: @running_bum_ @katiearnold @beckyswade
2. Tag a key running partner/adventure buddy/friend in the comments below the contest announcement on any of our accounts.
3. Contest ends at 11:59pm MST on Thursday, 12/19. We’ll then pick a winner at random, who will receive a set of 3 signed books + a set for the friend he/she tagged.
On your marks… get set… go!
