I'm writing a book!

Big news!  I've just finalized a contract with Endurance Planet and Ben Greenfield Fitness to write a book on endurance sports, to be released later this year! 

Obviously, it'll be a page-turner.
The working title is, "Advice from the Trenches: Endurance Planet's Insider's Guide to Sports Performance."  During my years in endurance sports, I've written a number of guides and lists of tips and tricks, and given all sorts of advice to aspiring and veteran endurance athletes.  This book will distill and expand on the things that people have found most helpful, and should provide a huge amount of concrete, useful information to help athletes get the most out of themselves in their training and racing.

I've personally gotten a great deal out of the Endurance Planet and Ben Greenfield Fitness podcasts and resources over the past couple of years, and I'm really looking forward to working with those guys to produce something terrific.  It'll be available on e-readers from iPad to Kindle to Nook, as well as in hard copy.

More details as they emerge!


  1. THAT IS SO COOL!!! While I have no intention of running more than 3 miles at a time, I can definitely turn more than 3 pages at a time and am very excited to buy your book!!! (Although talk to Tara about how long it takes me to READ people's books...)

    And I am INSANELY jealous that you are already publishing considering the only thing I've been supposedly doing for the past two years is writing a book, and I foresee it will hit the shelves sometime after the apocalypse...

  2. this is so exciting! when it comes out, will you sign my copy!?

  3. Lauren: of course! Hopefully I'll make enough money from the deal to buy one for myself. :-)

    Wendy: tell you what -- let's trade jobs and see if our respective publishers notice.

  4. This is awesome news Damon! And not surprising at all - you have alot of knowledge and it's great you're getting a chance to have a wider audience! Congrats!
