Two blog posts in one day. Whoah, Nelly. This is a quickie to again reluctantly let you know that I have a podcast for your amusement on the Runner's Lounge today. And by "amusement," I of course mean ridicule.
The back story for this interview about my book is that I was invited to participate in a Mothers' Day round table podcast on running and motherhood on Sunday night. I'd gotten up at 5:30 a.m. and then driven 8 hours from PA to New Hampshire to get Henry to a birthday party for a classmate, and I was kinda sorta thinking I would just slide down in my chair at the 9 p.m. virtual round table, drink my Mike's, and agree heartily with whatever everyone else said.
Joke's on me. None of my blog sisters called in. Ladies left me hangin' in a bad, bad way! I forgive you, of course, because I love running mothers and you were probably out being good parents or running or drinking together and laughing at my expense. And it was a good chance for me to hog the spotlight to talk about my book. If I don't sound like a completely incoherent mess, it was an opportunity to share a bit about my book to generate some interest (or again, ridicule).
According to Brian's review, the interview had some good humorous moments. But I didn't realize I was making jokes. Oh, boy. Remember when I fell on my face the other week while running? This could be a bit like that.
If there are publishers out there who stumble on the interview, I promise I have a very sound prospectus and that my book does not just revolve around mothers' use of foul language while running.
