Whenever I speak to friends who have written books we all agree: Book promotion is no easy feat. In the U.S. or Holland or where ever. And it comes down to you, the author. (Unless your name is Karnazes, or Franzen, maybe.) So here we go: my book is definitely still available!
Meanwhile the New York City Half Marathon was good to me, finally. I had tried to tackle that race twice. In 2009 the heat got me (1:34) and in 2010 I dropped out after 6 miles, a depressing DNF on the biggest stage… This time I got it after a long winter of serious training: a 1:23 PR. Happy days.
