Ever since I originally wrote a series of articles on marathon preparation and recovery for some friends of mine a year and a half ago, I thought about writing a book on the subject. I finally began that project this past Summer, and for the past couple of months I have been working on it non-stop. The last few weeks have been hectic as I rushed to complete the last few pieces of the puzzle and to get the formatting and graphics work put together for the project. It is amazing how exhausting this sort of a process can be!

Well, the work is almost done. I have sent out a dozen or so review copies of my manuscript, and I will be spending the weekend doing some final edits and getting my wife’s opinion on what I’ve written. I plan to make the book available for public consumption next week, so stay tuned for more details. In fact, if you join my mailing list you will not only be amongst the first to know about when it is available, but you will also be able to instantly download another book that I wrote a few months ago about the 3 components of an effective workout.

As exhausting as this process has been, it has also been a lot of fun and I can’t wait to share what I’ve written with you. Right now, the word count is standing at a bit over 31,000 words.
