"Pace Yourself" in the hands of Sarah Palin

Yes. . .I sure did. I sent Gov. Palin a copy of my book. Though I can't imagine how much mail she gets, I sent it anyway. Why not? Other than the fact that she is a key conservative figure in today's political scene, past governor of Alaska and vice-presidential candidate, she seems "normal" enough to relate the "normal" stories found in the book.

I figured she or her girls might enjoy it. Like a dork, I even sent it with a tracking number so I could trace it's journey. How corny is that, right?  I wrote her a letter and signed the book with hopes that it would end up in her hands. It did. Though the note I received back from her is standard, the signature is real. How cool is that?

Haha. I love Palin but doubt she will reside in the big white house on Pennsylvania Ave. But...it would be cool to be bedside reading.

Nice idea Rebekah! I gave a copy of your book to another influential lady - my wife! And she is telling me how much she enjoys it a couple of times a week.
Any chance you will be at Holiday Lake 50K selling/signing your book?

Hey Chuck-
I may be there Friday night but my indoor track distance kids run in state champs on Sat. So, I think I'll likely miss being able to run the race. I will try to come out Friday, however, with some books.

Glad your wife is enjoying it. Even better that you consider her an influential lady. :)

Hi Chuck- I'll be there Friday night. But I won't be able to run or be there Sat. My indoor distance runners have state champs in Richmond that day. It wold be pretty tacky for their coach to not show.

Hope to see you in two weeks.

Great, I will look forward to meeting you. Maybe I can bring my wife's copy of your book for you to sign. (I may have to scan a page so she has it to read Saturday morning!) And we have someone in mind to get another one for.
I also enjoyed reading about your jungle "adventure race".
Best wishes for your girls to run well. I am sure you will have them ready.
Chuck

OK. See you then, Chuck! I'll have books with me if you want another.
