I’d like your help in promoting my autobiography, Running through My Mind: Confessions of an Every Day Runner.   After 105,000+ miles and (literally) running every day for over 28 years, I think I’ve managed to compile the complete book of running.  From Peachtree to Boston to a ‘run across Georgia’ to 24-hour endurance runs to Badwater to Western States—I’ve managed to taste a little bit of everything running has to offer in my quest to cover the spectrum in my running career (which is still going strong, by the way).  I would appreciate it if you would forward this to the members of your running club as well as anyone else you believe might be interested or in need of a little motivation, a little inspiration, and a whole lot of entertainment.  Thanks in advance for your support.  -Scott Ludwig  Available now on www.amazon.com  100% of author royalties will be donated to the American Cancer Society and the American Heart Association in memory of the author's parents.
