She emailed the next day and said let's meet for lunch before I go back to LA. A little bit shocked I answered, 'Of course!' and we met up within a few days. Over lunch she said 'you need to write a book first. It's already ready.' I'm sure my eyes popped out of my face. And I had a thousand reasons why I shouldn't. I had no intention of writing a book! During that lunch though Emily talked me thru the process and made me feel like it was completely doable. Her, not being a runner, seemed to be caught up in my story of running a marathon a month for a year. It had been 2 years since I finished that crazy year and I had kinda forgotten about the responses I would get from people when I told them what I had accomplished. And of course it's always fun to talk running. :) That was is in September.
It's now January and the book is done! I've kept it under wraps mostly because I just didn't know how long it would take, but it's actually finished!
The book is about my year of 12 marathons in 12 months. It was such an amazing time in mine and my family's life that it seemed fun to share in book form. And I love that it's now in a complete edition to just have.
Some may remember that year with me and some have no idea that I did that... I hope that if anyone reads it they will see the love of running, the love of doing something bigger than what they thought may be possible and how doing something outside of the box can bring new experiences and people into their lives!
So I'll be sharing a lot about the book over the next few weeks!
And some other events that we have planned that will be coming up too!
The book is 'live' on Amazon in the Kindle store HERE!

I'm so grateful and still pinching myself!
