The winner is ....

The contest: I am sorry for the delay in communicating the name of the winner of The Outdoor Journey's competition but I was very busy to finish in time my job for the Nomeports project. I had a lot of reports to fill within the dead line on july 31st.
As 21st Century Mom made, I took the names of the people who are interested in winning the Dan Millman’s book, “Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior", put them on little pieces of paper, shook them up, picked one and ... the winner is .... Lady Anne!!!! Congratulations.
The celebration: To celebrate the Lady Anne's victory, the most famous italian rock progressive band, Le Orme, offered a concert in a little town in Tuscany, Civitella Marittima, to pay honour to the Black Knight and the kind winner. This was another unforgettable concert.

Training: This is a great summer of sport. Swimming across the sea, biking and running in a row. Running is slow again, about 6'30"/km, but I have to wait for the surgery before pushing....if I will be able.

Wisdom of the peaceful warrior

I am the proud forth winner of The Outdoor Journey's competition having been picked by winner number 3, 21st Century Mom. CurlySu was the first and Triboomer the second winner. There is still one chance to win the book-- just leave a comment here and let me know if you're interested.
This is your chance to get one of five autographed copies of Dan Millman’s fantastic book, “Wisdom of the Peaceful Warrior”. (click here to read hak's review)
Here’s how it will work:
1) From July 2 to July 15, 2008, post a comment at the bottom of the post stating that you want to enter the contest. Make sure to include your blog’s name and URL.
2) At the end of the month, one winner will be randomly selected. Let’s call this winner "Blogger July"
3) "Blogger July" will get two copies of the book: One copy signed by Dan Millman that he or she can keep and one book that CurlySu, TriBoomer, 21st Century Mom and the Black Knight will sign.
4) At this point, "Blogger July" writes a review of the book on his her blog, linking back to the blogs of, CurlySu, TriBoomer, 21stCenturyMom and Black Knight (who in turn link to each other throughout the tour). The passed along book will have everyone’s autograph on it and we’ll ship it back to Dan Millman to add to his personal library…the book that has gone around the world.
Are you game?
Hop on in! Leave a comment stating your interest, the name of your blog and your URL and I'll pick a winner at the end of the month!
Summer activity: Waiting for the surgery in october, the Black Knight enjoys this season running slowly, swimming across the sea and biking (in this photo there is a ridiculous Black Knight on his bike).
