Look what arrived in the mail today!!!!!
It’s my book!
It’s only the “Advanced Reading Copy,” but it’s still my book! In my hands! A real, live copy! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! I am psyched!
Mal hasn’t read any of my book yet, so he’s pouring over it at the dining room table right now. He might be just as excited as I am about it!
This afternoon, I snacked on a banana and a Blueberry Larabar. Additionally, a handful of butterscotch chips went undocumented. I love snacks.
Mal and I also took Murphy for a long walk around the neighborhood this afternoon. We had a nice time chatting and planning the upcoming week together. Mal and I find it helpful (and much less stressful) to get on the same page with appointments and events before the week gets going.
It was pretty cold outside (and I didn’t wear gloves), but the sun was shining, so the weather was bearable. Even still, I’m sooooo ready for Spring!
Speaking of Spring”¦
Check out this road race in Harvard Square this coming May!
The Tory Row 5K was designed by a runner for runners.
Jayne, a fellow runner and Tory Row’s Events and Communications Manager, is planning the 5K, so she basically thought of everything that she’d want as part of her ideal road race and incorporated these ideas into it. The Tory Row 5K includes a cool tech shirt (available in women’s sizes), chip timing, bag check, a post-race celebration with a free draft beer, and plenty of eco-friendly porto-potties. If you’re interested, I’d register soon. This race will sell out!
That is SOO exciting about your book!! I cannot wait to buy a copy!! 🙂
How exciting! To be holding your baby in your hands for the first time. I can’t wait for that day for myself.
Congrats on the book! Can’t wait to see it myself 🙂
So excited for you about your book and look forward to reading it. I bet Mal is so proud.
So excited for you (and the rest of us)! And a race in Harvard square would be so fun…I’m going to look into it now!
So excited for you! I look forward to seeing your book hit the shelves. 🙂
The book looks great! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!!
Congrats on your book!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am sooo happy for you, Tina. You must be soooo proud and ecstatic!
If you have any posts that I’ve missed where you talk about the process of writing your book and then shopping it around, and finding an agent, editor, publisher, etc..I’d love to read it! I have been told writing a book is easy. It’s everything else that isn’t 🙂
Ahh yay!!! You must be off the walls right now! 🙂 I know I can’t wait to get my copy!
Oh, are you racing this weekend? I can’t remember if you said you were doing the 5K at Davis or not, but hopefully I can catch you and say hello!

Congratulations on the book Tina! Crazy that Mal hadn’t read any yet. I can’t wait to read it myself!
I’m kind of scared to ask – but what exactly is an eco-friendly port-o-potty?
Congrats on your book! I can’t wait until we can buy it!
I love snacks too–I am definitely a grazer throughout the day. I have yet to try the Blueberry Larabar.
