I’m Finally Writing My Running Book & Here’s How You Can Help!
I’m writing a book and you can pledge to buy it right now over on the crowd funding website Indiegogo.
Why a book and why now?
I haven’t really been in great health recently and it’s only now that I’ve appreciated how far I’ve come.
It’s time to put all of my running experiences down on paper, in a format that will be helpful to new and experienced runners alike.
At the moment I have all of the chapter titles written and an introduction to start each of them off, I just need the time to sit down and put all my experiences onto paper.
That’s why your pledges are vital at this stage. They will allow me to work on the book throughout the day, over the coming months.
It won’t be one of these fitness pamphlets that are all the rage on Amazon. It will be a proper, substantial book, albeit with a lot of swearing.
I’ve felt conflicted about writing this book for a while.
There are so many brilliant runners out there who go to the effort of watching what they eat and following their training schedules to a T, whilst I’m still a complete fucking slob at times.
Why should I be writing a book?
Then I realised most runners are slobs to a certain level and they struggle with the exact same issues that I do.
In the book I will talk openly about the problems I’ve encountered out on the road and how I’ve managed to deal with them. It will be informative, useful and hopefully funny.
Interesting perks you can receive for your pledge
All of the pledges offer the book as standard, but I’m also offering a few other things as rewards for higher pledges.
My race t-shirts.
I’ve had to stop wearing my race t-shirts out on runs as they tend to tear the tits off me.
You’re probably think “ew Angry Jogger, why would we want your awful fucking skanky race t-shirts?”.
Well I don’t know. Maybe you can give them as a belated Christmas present to someone you fucking hate.
Some cool medals
I’ve not giving away any of the medals I’ve actually earned. Competitor.com keep sending me out these sweet looking winged medals for running their races in different cities and continents.
They are pretty heavy and make for good weapons.
I’ve only 2 of these available so hurry if you want them.
Oh and signed photos…..
Why would we want a signed photo of your fucking head?
A good point.
You can show it to your children as a deterrent if they are being naughty.
You can use it as a study aid for your anthropology lessons
‘This is how their heads grow in Northern Ireland!’
Or you can glue it to your monitor or your fridge so that I’m always there. Watching you. Imploring you to run.
Your ‘perks’ are shit, can’t you create better ones?
I’m open for suggestions to new perks.
For instance Medal Slut is trying to me to pose naked for a reflective sepia shot using her EMF Edinburgh Medal.
Born To Plod wants my fucking kidneys.
I’m open to any perk ideas that don’t involve male glamour modelling or entering the black organ donor market.
