Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 36

Featuring: The “Dry Down” Jack Black Giveaway



 Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

Today, as I am typing this post, it is Mother’s Day so first want to wish all of you Moms out there a “Happy Day” and thank you for your service to mankind. I am a mother of two furry babies and could not imagine all of the work involved in raising a real-live human being so kudos to all of you who date to try. (Except for that mother in Park Slope who asked me to explain to her 4 year-old son he was not allowed to join in the adult fitness classes because “he doesn’t really listen to me.”) You Madam, needn’t have bothered.

Today I am aiming for a super, quick Vlog cast and announcing my latest giveaway. So let’s get to gettin’, shall we?

Featured on my Vlog this week:

  • The Fitness magazine “Meet & Tweet” event set for this week in New York City.
  • The second most important book in my life right now: VJ: The Unplugged Avdentures of MTV’s First Wave I bought this for my kindle two days ago and cannot stop myself from reading and rereading it. If you have any affection for 80s MTV—you will love this book. By the way—for those of you who do read it, a woman names Liz Nealon is mentioned fondly several times as a well-respected colleague of the former VJs. She happens to be a friend of mine with some of the best stories in the world. Really!
  • I forgot to mention (dammit!) that the author of the VJ book is Gavin Edwards in the Vlog post. (Sorry Gavin Edwards!) Here is a link to all of his fun, pop culture and music-based books. Gavin Edwards. He is a great writer—you should check out his work.
  • The most important book to come out in the last week or so is the third from my very best friend Deborah Rae Cota The Traveler (available in paperback and on Kindle & Nook!)  Deborah and I have been friends for over 20 years and she loves to write about fantastical beings with incredible powers and her story telling is top notch. So after you get the MTV book go out and support and independent author who kicks serious ass!
  • My giveaway of Jack’s Dry Down Friction-Free Powder which I know some of you runners and cyclists would LOVE to get your hands on.
