I cannot even begin to tell you just how excited I am about the official launch of my new book, “You CAN Go the Distance! Marathon Training Guide: Advice, Plans & Motivation for All Runners.”
This book has been a long time in the making. It started off as a series of blog posts I wrote while training for the 2012 Richmond Marathon. Many readers started commenting and asking questions and it just grew from there!
Along the way, I started sharing some of my training ideas and motivational tips in 140-character phrases on Twitter and the response to those really surprised me. People started replying and ReTweeting my tweets at rate I never could have predicted. It was humbling to know so many people were interested in what I had to say on the subject!
So, after many miles run, many chapters written, rewritten, and edited, the book gradually came together to what it is today! And, again, I am completely amazed and humbled by the response!
I’m excited about how the book came to be what is today, but I am even more excited to see what it will become in the next few weeks, months, and even years! I truly hope that people will use what I’ve written to reach goals and dreams they never thought they could. I hope people stop saying “I can’t” and start saying “I can!”
I am also excited about this website and the online community that will be created around the book’s central theme of “going the distance.” I will be here to interact with you, answer your questions, and to cheer for you as you post the results of your achievements!
So here we go! Are you ready? Let’s go the distance together!!

Bruce. You didn’t tell me that you were writing a book. Great job! I have been needing more motivation to continue toward a marathon. Thanks! God bless.
Thank you, Kevin. It’s been an exciting project. I’m humbled by how well it has been received!
