Book Reviews Needed. Will trade for books! If you will take the time to review one or both of my new books I will be happy to send you a pdf version to download. This means that you don’t have to purchase the book and can have full access to the material today. What I need in return is a review to be placed on Amazon.com on September 22 (for the newest book) and ASAP for the other book.. Are you interested?
Only 20 words from you could make a big difference in sales. Thanks for the LOVE! Contact me by email at StephanieAtwood@gowowliving.com and I will forward a pdf attachment right away!

WOW Woman of the Week: Leticia Duenas is one of the longest term members in Go WOW dating back to 2005! This was actually before WOW started and I was coaching for See Jane Run. At that time Leticia was single and without children. She is now married and has two young boys! Talk about some life changes. Thank you for your friendship and support of WOW Leticia. It’s been quite a journey and we’re just getting started!
September Birthdays: Jacqueline Rickman, Jessica McElroy, Janet Mc Gee, Tami Price, Mayra Montoya, Sharon Alberts, Joann Denning, Mary Sue Weston Thomas, Sophie Jani, Tiffany Akins-Dunbar, Dawn Robinson, Julia Halsne. Happy Birthday September Girls!
Coach Tip of the Week: Race week! This is the time to focus on lots of rest, eating good, healthy food, staying hydrated, and visualizing your race day. I encourage you to mentally picture and physically go through the transitions from swim to bike to run (triathlon) or run to bike to run (duathlon). This weekend will be a learning experience for all of us and should also be fun! Be sure to plan to join us afterward for breakfast at Dean’s Restaurant in Pleasanton.
Here we go!

Go WOW News
Dear WOW Ladies and Interested Readers,
Last Sunday at Point Isabel was so much fun! We had new faces – Jennifer; returning faces like teachers Erin Conklin, Kathrina Weekes and Kathleen Gadway; and we also had some women checking out their bikes after taking a few decades’ hiatus – Go Ellen Gordon! It was also nice to see Jessica Mangaccat, Tricia O, and Julia Halsne walking their dogs.
And of course we had a super group of runners and walkers who show up on a fairly regular basis and make it all worth being somewhere by 8AM on a Sunday morning. Super Sunday. Really fun!
While the triathlon is the big thing for this weekend and we encourage all of you to come out and participate or support The TEAM, we also have a workout planned at Emeryville Marina. Lori Whittock will head up that workout for runners and walkers with our half marathon trainees going for 10 miles or 120 minutes (whichever comes first). Thank you Lori, for helping out!
Broads Run Broadway is Saturday, September 27, Saturday night, 6PM in downtown Oakland. You can still register for this fun, costume event and join several of your WOW Teammates in this low key, untimed, 5K (3.1 mile) run, walk, or hop, costume event with prizes and a good looking jacket as part of your registration fee. http://www.corrigansports.com/broads-run-broadway/
I’m still checking on details for our triathlon this weekend and will be organizing a call-in on Thursday evening. If you have any questions or comments about the triathlon OR Broads Run Broadway feel free to call in on Thursday, September 18 at 5:30Pm to talk with Lauren Ganes and Me. The call in number is 1 712-432-3011, Conference Code 211360. Also check on Facebook for updates.
