Run. Think. Repeat. offers a glimpse in to the every-day life of a real runner - woman, mom, wife, friend and plain ol’ gal as she finds humor, joy and reasons to smile in the here and now.  As first-time author, Kim Rezendes, put in the miles each day, she realized that life moves so fast and, let’s face it, can be pretty heavy at times.  But if you pay attention, there’s a whole lotta ridiculous, funny and inspiring everywhere you look.  RTR will make you realize that you are not alone and that laughing at yourself (and those around you) makes for a much happier place.  In the little scheme of things, getting from point a to point b can be filled with mishaps, “how did that happens” and questionable endings.  But in the grand scheme of things, getting from Point A to Point B really should be filled with laughter.  Isn’t life too short for anything other?  Come visit Kim at the expo, grab a signed copy of her book, sit back and enjoy!
