Ok, so if you'll forgive me, this is the pretty much obligatory post to let you all know that my book, Ben on Foot, is out now! For you guys who pre-ordered the limited edition first print, they're on their way :)

It's about how I went from a complete non-runner, to running ultra distances in about a year, culminating in my showdown with a self-planned 130-mile jaunt across south-west England. It's not a training guide, more of a personal account with a few lessons sprinkled throughout - it's honest, at least haha.

Feedback from everyone who's read it so far has been humblingly positive - if you'd like to have a read yourself, it's available either through Amazon here or directly from my Createspace platform here. It's also available on Kindle through Amazon here.

I owe a massive thanks to the community on here, because without the support and camaraderie of members old (RWE represent!) and new, I don't think I'd have made it through the story that's in the book, let alone written it all down afterwards.

Ok, so that's my final bit of self-promotion done - if you grab a copy, I'd love to know what you think... and I'm sure your friends would too ;)

Speak to y'all soon.
