Overview

As a child I really, really hated running, yet in 2011 I completed the Marathon des Sables. Charting my journey from non-runner to ultra-runner, this book follows my training from the first tentative steps, through my first marathon attempt, to a blow by blow account of the crushing lows and soaring highs of my time in the desert. This is not a how-to guide on running long, long distances. It is an expression and an explanation of my love affair with running and is intended to be a source of inspiration for those who don't believe they have it in them to take on seemingly insurmountable challenges.

Meet the Author

I am a writer, runner, engineer and gamer. Not necessarily in that order. I love to write. It has given me immeasurable enjoyment over the years and has yielded several books so far, most notably Dreamweavers: Awakening, a mind-warping adventure for all ages, and 824, which is an expression of my love of running. I'm currently working on a follow-up to DW:A and wish I had enough hours in the day to follow up all the other ideas I have for stories.
