Issue 372 - Mon 26th Jun 2006


I hope everything is ok where you are.

I can tell you in advance, I'm not sure if there'll be an issue next Monday.
I'll be lurching into my 41st year on that day, I'm not sure what I'll be doing, so we'll have to wait and see.

As for my plan to run the London Marathon to celebrate it, it's all going well.
Yesterday I did 11 miles in 2 hours 10 minutes, which is still bang on schedule.
Next Sunday the target is 12 miles, although with the way it's going I can see myself doing 13, and that's a half marathon!

So that's going from *very* unfit to an on-target half marathon in 2 hours 36.
I can't say I'm surprised at that progress, because I'm following an established plan to achieve, it but there have been no glitches or hiccups, which is always a bonus!

A few weeks ago I asked for your opinions on what I should do with my new book.
I've decided now, and this is the plan...

I'm giving the book away for free.

There are no catches, I'm not even asking for email addresses.

You can get it at:

If you read it and enjoy it, it would be great if you could pass it on to people, via your mailing list, your site, whatever.
If you want, I can brand it for you, meaning that your website link is on the front page, and all mentions of my 'Transform Your Life in 21 Days!' book will be your affiliate link.
Then if you give it away, and the people you give it to pass it on, who knows who it may bring to your site, who knows who may buy my first book and earn you commission!

So, why am I giving it away for nothing?
Well, as with a lot of internet projects, it was quick and fairly easy to set up, it might have worked, it might not.
As a profit making exercise, it hasn't worked.

Now what I want to do is concentrate on raising the sponsorship money for the charity.
So, in the book, I ask that if you were to send me a birthday card, or buy me a birthday drink, then spend that money on sponsoring me instead!

You can sponsor me at the site:

Or, just enjoy the book with my compliments.

Ok, that's it for today.
Have a good week.

Health and Happiness,
