I'm not sure whether this is entirely running related, but more sort of me-related, I guess.

One of the reasons why I've been quieter on the blogging front is that I've been spending the last few months writing a book about running - specifically, how I spent a year going from a complete non-runner to someone able to comfortably run marathons and even run ultra distances.

I figure there might be people out there who want to read about an ordinary guy's experiences and lessons learned along the way, but we'll see, I suppose :)

I'll keep you posted as to how I'm getting on with it as I go - it's in my final draft stage now, where it's ready to go out to potential agents and publishers. Also, I promise I'll go back to writing about the running I'm doing soon (it's going pretty well!).

I hope to read your book when it is done. I have toyed with the idea of writing a book someday. That is what got me started writing my blog. Keep it up!

Hey guys, thanks - don't you worry, I'll keep on blabbing about it I'm sure :)

Planning a nice little sunrise run for this weekend - apparently the recent storms have pretty much completely reshaped one of the beaches near me, so I think I might have to go and see what's what!
