“You CAN Go the Distance!” is not JUST a book that you read once and then put aside. I’ve written this book with the hope that you will use it as a reference to look back upon as you move through your training and as a source of inspiration and motivation. Throughout this book, I will tell you and show you “You CAN!”
In addition to the book, however, I have also created a website, www.YouCanGoTheDistance.com, to be an on-line resource and community for you. On the website, you find the complete text for some chapters and partial text for other chapters in this book. You’ll be able to interact with other readers and me by posting comments or questions in each chapter.
There are also how-to and motivational videos, and links to other on-line resources.
My goal with the book and the website is to give you the confidence of knowing you are not in this alone. Marathon runners are a very generous and helpful breed of people, so they will be there to support you and answer your questions too!
When you get to the last chapter, The Finish Line, be sure to jump over to that section of the website. When you finish your marathon, or any other race or big accomplishment, tell us about it at The Finish Line (http://www.youcangothedistance.com/book/finish-line) so we can cheer for you and give you a virtual High-Five. Also, come see who else has finished their race and be a cheerleader for them.
As you read through this book, if you have any questions or want to share a comment, just go to the corresponding chapter at www.YouCanGoTheDistance.com and engage with the community.
You can also interact with me and others through Twitter and Facebook. Join our social community at:
Also, as a tip for getting the most out of this Kindle version (and for all of your Kindle books), make sure you log into your Kindle account at Amazon.com and be sure to have your “Automatic Book Updates” setting set to “On”. This will ensure that you’ll get the latest version of the book if I can content or make corrections to any of the content.
