Calling all Nashville SCBWI attendees!

And Philly attendees. And Minnesota! Are you an author and/or illustrator and/or fellow presenter who also happens to be training for a marathon?!? I'll be speaking at all of these conferences in the coming weeks, which just happens to coincide with peak marathon training. Being a bit of a chatty Cathy runner, I'd love to put in a nice leisurely... 13 mile or more run with fellow SCBWI-ers! C'mon, it will be fun! We can talk about children's books hours before the conference begins- think of the head start we'll get!

So, shoot me an email if interested- and please pass on to anyone you think might be keen! Gracias!

(Do you notice my abundance use of exclaimation points?! To convince you that running 13 miles will be fun!)

Hi Victoria, I'll be at the Nashville conference next weekend and if I could run 13 miles without keeling over, I'd join you.

Now, if you'd like to go swing dancing I can help you out with that!

Hi Vicki,

We do have a number of folks who like to run in cold weather here in MN, so I'll post this on our listserv for you!

And if I had any coordination or rhythym, I'd be right there with you for swing dancing, Kristi!

And thanks, Christina!

I'm really looking forward to both conferences...

Hey Victoria, just caught up on my blog reading looking forward to meeting you tomorrow in Nashville! Good luck running 13 miles over all our hills, I'm impressed;)

Well, don't be too impressed, Mary- I brought my shoes but never actually went running. I limited my weekend athletic pursuits to things like "attending dessert party".
