Got Story?

In this group are people with similar interests. We have a lot of sidewalk, pavement, track & trail under our shoes. That is a lot of experience. We gather with other people and tell the tales of running and competitions. Hey, most of us blog about our passion for the sport.

Jim thinks that there is a potential for a book out of the many tales of running. He hears them where he lives and exercises. He reads them on blogs. He hears them during competitions. He shares tales on the trails.

He'd like to hear your story.

If you'd like to share a dream, contact Jim. Jim can be reached through his blog,, or through his e-mail.

Thanks, Jim, for thinking of us!

Thanks Charlie for adding this request. What we are looking for is an essay of appox. 500-1000 words, nothing lengthy. It should be humorous or inspirational, not a "how-to" story. Our goal is to assemble 75-100 stories and publish it as a light hearted look at our sport. I know we are approaching the holiday season, but if you could get your story to me in the next 30 days that would be great! Any proceeds would go to charity.

Any questions please contact me at my e-mail address.

No mileage this weekend for me. I am still battling the illness I suffered from last weekend! Hopefully some miles for next week!

No mileage for me either. A forced break this week so I could rekindle my love for running.

Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
