The Summit Seeker Review and Giveaway

In addition to running, reading is also something that I enjoy doing. And although I don't get a lot of time to read lately, I do try to sneak it in whenever I can. So when I had the opportunity to review The Summit Seeker by Vanessa Runs, I was excited to read a book that the theme was about running.

Now, if you are looking for a book to tell you how to trail run or give you tips, this book isn't for you. This book is about a young woman, Vanessa, and her journey with trail running and ultra running. There were parts of the book that I had hoped she would expand a little, and I wasn't ready for her to move on to the next topic. And at times, I was ready for her to move on instead of continuing. But with anything, it's personal preference (especially when it comes to books).

After reading The Summit Seeker, I was inspired to continue to dabble into trail running, and the thoughts of a future, ok maybe a very distant future, ultra. Also, the way that she described barefoot running also intrigued me.

We runners all run for different reasons. And I have found that as my seasons in life change, so does my reasons for running. It was refreshing to ready someone else's reason for running, and hearing about their experiences.

Overall, I found The Summit Seeker to be an enjoyable read. I'm glad to add this book to my collection. And I would also like to share a copy with you. Simply enter below to win a copy of The Summit Seeker by Vanessa Runs. (U.S. residents only). The giveaway ends February 24, 2014.
