<DIV><B>From the lead author of <I>Build Your Running Body</I> (“the best running book ever”—<I>Runner’s World</I> founder Bob Anderson), a one-of-a-kind guide for everyone who wants to run but feels they can’t</B><BR /><BR /> As a drug-addled young man, Pete Magill once found himself in the ER, with his body telling him to <I>give up</I>. Taking up running seemed impossible—but he willed himself to do it anyway.<BR /><BR /> Magill went on to become one of the fastest masters runners ever, and a sought-after coach. Over a glowing (albeit hard-won) career, he has heard every excuse people use to stop running or never start—from achy knees and sore ankles, to advanced age and arthritis, to too many cigarettes or years on the couch.<BR /><BR /> In every case, Magill’s best advice is to do what he did: Run anyway—at a pace and mileage that work. Through inspiration, science, and anecdote, Magill gets runners out the door; through personal action plans, he sets them on the right path; and through the best exercises to protect and rehabilitate the body, he keeps them going—showing a way forward for new and sidelined runners who haven’t before realized how close they are to fun and pain-free<BR /> running!</DIV>

At some point in life there comes the time when the storm must become peace…<br />Becoming a racehorse is a grueling marathon training event. FROM RACE HORSE TO TRAIL HORSE AND PET is the non-fictional memoir of Billy, an ex-thoroughbred race horse, who’s able to look back over a young but profound life and shares his deeply moving story!<br />Retired from racing, Billy is exercised occasionally but always groomed and fed… Until one day he’s not shod and soon develops abscesses on his feet. Angry at Billy’s condition, his caretaker called the vet. After all the changes that have happened at the farm, Billy worries as horses leave and his caretaker sinks deeper and deeper into melancholy. And this was only the beginning.<br />Despite his caretaker's sadness and the disappearance of the other horses, she cares lovingly for Billy. The day she takes him to a new home, he’s surprised but very pleased — He was moved to a green and grassy place, with good hay to eat and a lake with cool, refreshing water! Although he’s the only thoroughbred race horse in the huge paddock, the other horses, albeit somewhat shy, are healthy, well-groomed and friendly. To his surprise, Billy finds out he first must learn to be like a natural horse — something he’s never been taught. He’d been trained to run and win. This is a new race in which no one runs and everyone can win!<br />In this heartwarming and candid expose, we’re invited into the world of a thoroughbred race horse, never realizing the trials and triumphs that make this horse and caretaker a cut above all others! This enthralling book is filled with gorgeous photos that say what words never can. Get your copy of FROM RACE HORSE TO TRAIL HORSE AND PET and discover the exciting and precarious life of a champion thoroughbred whose only goal is to fit in… Just to be a natural horse! <br />

It’s how you start out and how you end up… but never about getting off track, just how fast you get back on!<br />Sonny is JUST ANOTHER RACE HORSE with a story to tell that will open a well of emotion in your soul and melt your heart as you read each endearing page of his young life! Sonny’s first memory is of being born and seeing the warmth and love in his mother’s eyes as she sees her newborn son for the first time. In the beginning, life is good. Sonny grows into a handsome, sleek thoroughbred, wrapped in a blanket of love and approval — trusting the good of the world that surrounds him. It isn’t long, however, before he realizes life is about to throw him moldy carrots!<br />The day he was taken from his home, from his mother, is the scariest day of his life. Everyone and everything is new. Herded into a huge horse trailer with other horses, he’s taken to a strange place. Everyone makes sure he’s fed well and groomed well, but for the first time in his life he’s yelled at for being playful, then sold at auction into the new and dangerous world of thoroughbred racing!<br />JUST ANOTHER RACE HORSE is the poignant story of a thoroughbred raised all his young life to be a race horse — complete with all the brutality of his training while immersed in the seedy side of horse racing! Through it all, Sonny keeps his positive attitude, but how can he ever know that winning has a very nasty side… losing — and you’re only as good as your next race!<br />Get your copy today and join Sonny in this winning memoir that stamps him as a king among princes and not JUST ANOTHER RACE HORSE!<br /><br />

When journalist Robert Andrew Powell finished his first marathon, he cried, cradled in his father’s arms. Long distance runners understand where those tears come from, even if there are others who will never understand what drives someone to run 26.2 consecutive miles in a grueling mental and physical test. Powell’s emotional reaction to completing the race wasn’t just about the run, though. It was also about the joy and relief of coming back up after hitting rock bottom. <P><I>Running Away</I> is the story of how one decision can alter the course of a life. Knocked down by a painful divorce and inspired by his father, Powell decided to change his mindset and circumstances. He moved to Boulder and began running in earnest for the first time in his life. Over the 26.2 chapters that follow, Powell grapples with his past relationships, gaining insight and hard-won discipline that give him hope for the future.

Is ignorance bliss? How ignorant was the AWA in 1983 about the coming New York hurricane? By the very end of 1983 Vince McMahon Jr had made his plans clear; to take his brand national. No longer would he honor the NWA boundaries. These were boundaries that the AWA also respected. Even though Verne had made a split from the NWA, the AWA worked in a very cooperative manner with the NWA’s territories. How aware was Verne Gagne of McMahon’s full intentions? Did he take the threat seriously? While we can't know for sure, 1983 was certainly a year of sellouts....before the storm.<br />1983 saw the further rise of Hulk Hogan and Jesse Ventura. These two put butts in seats. AWA cards were filled out by other superstars as well. Wrestlers like Nick Bockwinkel, Mr. Saito, Bobby Heenan, Jerry Lawler, Wahoo McDaniel, Ray Stevens, Ken Patera, Jerry Blackwell and even Andre the Giant delighted the fans. Sellouts were commonplace in older, established markets and the AWA was building new markets such as Phoenix and the Bay Area.<br />But as business boomed, this plan was being hatched in New York. During 1983 Vince McMahon targeted the top stars of all the regional promotions. For the AWA this meant that Hulk Hogan, Jesse Ventura and Bobby Heenan would soon be gone. Before long David Shults and Jim Brunzell would also leave for the Big Apple.<br />Beyond signing AWA talent, McMahon also began upgrading his media exposure. He made some of his shows look more big-time (some remained quite old-fashioned) and he inked deals with NBC and MTV. Soon enough WWF merchandise, including an album, trading cards and action figures, would be everywhere. <br />The AWA loved 1983 so much that they wanted 1984 to look like another version of 1983. But in 1984 Verne Gagne saw at least some of the changes and dangers that lie ahead. He joined other promoters to fight McMahon by forming Pro Wrestling USA. In a sense, 1983 was really the end of the pure territory era.<br />In this book you will read about the top stars as well as some of the other talented wrestlers who helped make the AWA "The Major League of Professional Wrestling" in 1983. You will also get to read about each and every one of the AWA's events/cards during this calendar year. Finding these was a labor of love. There are listings online but they often times contradict each other. I looked into each event to find at least a couple of confirmations. In some cases newspapers listed the matches as regular sporting events. In other cases small articles were written to entice people to come to the matches. To the best of my knowledge, THIS was the AWA in 1983. You will also get the most comprehensive list of videos, DVD's, books and shoot interviews anywhere. If it has anything to do with the AWA in 1983, it's listed here! You will be linked to hundreds of hours of AWA action and entertainment. <br />The AWA was one of my great childhood passions. I would watch Saturdays and Sundays. It was the same show, but I loved watching it twice. Once the internet became a big-time player in the nostalgia world, my love for AWA action reached a new peak. While I began enjoying WCCW and other territories, the AWA will always be my favorite. <br />

There’s something about starting the day on a bike. There’s a feeling of optimism and adventure and the sense that anything’s possible and nothing’s for sure. It’s quiet, and the air is pure like scentless perfume. The dust hasn’t kicked up yet, and it’s so clear that you can see forever. Whizzing past in a car, you get a rough idea of what it’s like but you’re separated from the world by so many layers that you never get a real feel for the landscape. Cycling lets you tap into the true nature of a place and experience it with your soul. The sun on your face, the beckoning horizon and the rhythm of your breathing all conspire to fill you with the simple joy of being alive and on the road.<br /><br />Share in this real life, round-the-world adventure today!
