Ice Breaker – Your Book

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

Question:  If you were to write a book, what would it be about?

My Answer:  Honestly, until a few years ago, I never imagined writing a book.  When I was in first grade, I wrote a book about the colors of the rainbow.  I think I still have it hiding in a storage bin in my basement.

I’m excited to be very close to releasing my first “official” book which is still on schedule to release on April 22, 2014.  The book is called On Track – Life Lessons from the Track & Field.  This book isn’t just for the runner or athlete.  I believe it provides practical life lessons we all can embrace.  If you’re stuck in a rut or need a little guidance in finding your way, I’m hoping this book will help you get On Track!

The reality is I have another book in the works.  I’m not sure of the title yet, but the book is about developing a mission mindset.  I’m excited to share my own story, to provide practical advice, and to encourage readers to become mission minded right where they are.  It will be exciting to see how this unfolds.
