Good Morning Hot (Sweaty) Mamas!

It's Wednesday and I'm welcoming Kara Thom & Laurie Kocanda, co-authors of Hot (Sweaty) Mamas: Five Secrets to Life as a Fit Mom, to Kids Running Wild!

Since we'll be spending the whole day together, I thought I'd start with some introductions...
Kara Douglass Thom was a runner and triathlete long before she became a mom and finds her multisport training skills apply to mothering her four young children, 8-year-old twin girls, a 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son. She is the author of two other books, “Becoming an Ironman: First Encounters with the Ultimate Endurance Event,” and the children’s book, “See Mom Run.” She writes about health, fitness and parenting for numerous publications and blogs about finding fitness in the chaos of motherhood at Mama Sweat.
A veteran endurance athlete, Laurie Lethert Kocanda has completed over 40 marathons, two Ironman triathlons, and four ultramarathons… so far. Motherhood has made her tougher—she’s conquered more miles and covered them faster as a mom than she did before. Laurie is an ACE certified group fitness instructor and has been revving up group cycling classes for over 10 years. As the former editor of two regional sports magazines and a freelance writer for local and national publications, Laurie’s writing focuses on fitness, family, women’s issues, and pregnancy. She has two daughters, who are 9 and 5.
Remember- at the end of the day I'm giving away a copy of their book.  All you have to do is leave a comment.  Every comment equals another entry in the drawing. 
So say "Good Morning" to Kara & Laurie!
