I am giving away one of my own running plan for anyone wanting to run a 5k, 10K, or marathon.  I even have another option for my non-runners out there: a WALKING half marathon plan.   Each plan typically sells for $50, so this is a steal of a deal! All you have to do is write a review in Amazon for one of my books or in iTunes for my show or app.  You can select one program per review that you write for the following options: (1). Review The Skinny, Sexy Mind: The Ultimate French Secret (2). Review my ebook Building a Better Body Image: 50 Days to Loving Yourself from the Inside Out  (3). Review my podcast show Confidence on the Go in iTunes under podcasts (4). Review one of my iOS apps in iTunes So, just write a review (and this is on the honor system) and then let me know which running training program you’d like in return.  If you’d like more than one program (which I recommend since they’re not always going to be free!), then simply pick another product to review! Pretty simple! Now there’s no excuse not to have a consistent workout plan! Just do it.   INSPIRED, WANT TO SHARE YOUR STORY, OR WANT MORE TRISH?   Below are more ways to connect with me, check them out, post a comment below or email me for more info at!
