Id 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 Ive 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 StatesIve
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
