"Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior"

I was lucky enough to be the second winner of The Outdoor Journey's competition. The amazing artist, muscian, humanitarian, and Ironman, CurlySu was the first winner. There are still 3 more chances to win the book-- just leave a comment here and let me know you're interested.

That's it!

Description of the contest, from Hak's site (note that steps 1 and 2 have already been completed):

This is your chance to get your hands on one of five autographed copies of Dan Millman’s fantastic book, “Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior”. (click here to read hak's review)

I’m going to do this as a fun experiment and see just how many multisport Peaceful Warriors we have around the world. Here’s how it will work:

1) From March 23 to March 31, 2008, post a comment at the bottom of the post stating that you want to enter the contest. Make sure to include your blog’s name and URL.

2) At the end of the month, one winner will be randomly selected. Let’s call this winner "Blogger March."

3) "Blogger March" will get two copies of the book: One copy signed by Dan Millman that he or she can keep and one book that CurlySu, TriBoomer and "Blogger March" will sign. "Blogger March" then writes a review of the book and continues the contest for the month of April, with the same rules, on his or her blog. "Blogger March" must link back to during the contest promotion.

4) At the end of April, "Blogger March" announces a random winner from his or her blog. This winner, "Blogger April", then gets two copies of the book. One signed by Dan to keep and the other signed by CurlySu, TriBoomer and "Blogger March." "Blogger April" also writes a review of the book and promotes the contest on his or her blog for the month of April, linking back to and CurlySu, TriBoomer, and "Blogger March".

5) We continue this monthly until we get to "Blogger June." At this point, "Blogger June" writes a review of the book on his her blog, linking back to the blogs of and CurlySu, TriBoomer, "Bloggers March, April, and May" (who in turn link to each other throughout the tour). The passed along book will have everyone’s autograph on it and we’ll ship it back to Dan Millman to add to his personal library…the book that has gone around the world.

Are you game?

Stay tuned...

Big fan of Peaceful Warrior & Sacred Journey- highly recommend it to those of you who haven't already read Dan Millman.

I can relate to the one comment I read. I starting marathoning and multisporting forty pounds ago. My wife looked at me like I had two heads. A couple months later she bought a treadmill. Last spring she finished her first marathon.

I'm in.

Hey TriBoomer, glad to finally get to your site and catch up on the competition, just to see how far behind I am. Uh, yeah, I've got a ways to go. Thanks for the support into the tri community though.

I want to enter this contest! Maybe this book can help ensure I stay on a humbled and conscientious path; as my ego and arrogance have long been an albatross, seemingly always being counterproductive to the good spirit that fitness gives me.
Sorry for the long-winded post, too much coffee this morning.

What a great tribute to the author
