Announcing The Ultimate Runner: Be part of this running book!

Amy and are delighted to share some exciting news!

Ultimate Runner A few months ago we told you about a new book project by Health Communications, Inc to bring together great stories and advice for runners.  Since then, our partnership with HCI has continued and we are now proud to announce we will be the authors of the upcoming book—The Ultimate Runner: Stories and Tips to Keep You Moving, to be published in Spring 2010.

The Ultimate Runner is a compilation of true stories from beginning runners to Ironman veterans, celebrating what's good, bad, and funny about running.  In addition to great stories, the book will share advice by experts plus capture the meaning, challenge, and beauty of running in stunning photography.


Share your running story!

We know many of you have a way with words, and we invite you to share your running stories for possible publication. The deadline for story submissions is August 15, 2009.

We have already shared many stories from Runners’ Lounge members with the book's editor and also encouraged many of you to re-submit your stories to HCI directly.  We want your story to be part of this book!

Stories can be inspiring, humorous, enlightening, or motivating, and can cover anything you've learned about yourself, others, or the world around you because of running.  From training for a marathon to actually finishing it, from a deeper spiritual connection to the world or a better connection to yourself, from running in exotic places to running for a cause—we welcome your insights and expertise.   

To spark your ideas, the chapters in The Ultimate Runner will include:

  • Physical Transformation
  • Emotional and Spirtual
  • The Social Side of Sneakers
  • Off the Beaten Path
  • Memorable Races
  • Running For a Greater Cause

If selected, your story will be enjoyed in a collection that will reach and touch runners around the world and you will be compensated!   Your stories can be submitted directly at the Ultimate Book site.

Photographs

If you tell stories with photos instead of words, we want your pictures!  We’re seeking high-quality photographs that tell a story that words cannot.  Share your pics of some of the world’s most picturesque races or the breathtaking scenery others might have missed while they were struggling for breath.

We are also seeking interesting shots and compositions: a lone runner on a foggy morning, someone  running on the beach at sunset, a group of racers lining up together—images that motivate and inspire or shots that make you appreciate the moment in a way only an image can capture.

Your photos can also be submitted directly at the Ultimate Book site.

Since you are part of a great network or runners, we invite you to pass along this call-for-stories on your blog and also with your running friends, particularly in your local community with running friends, clubs, race directors, and running enthusiasts. 

If you have any questions, please contact Amy or me.

Right now, I'm longing for the melting sun & exhausting heat. But, I'm sure I'll change my mind in a few weeks and I'll be wishing for the ice cold air & killer winds I wished away a few weeks ago.
