Author and Runner Michael Selmer

In the most recent episode of the podcast available over at: Dirt Dawg's Running Diatribe, I had the opportunity to chat with runner and author Michael Selmer.  Michael's first book "Harvest of the Heart" has just been published and one of the things that I took away from the chat was how his running had an impact on him chasing down his dream of writing a book.

Competing in the Leadville 100 Miler, Michael realized that anything is possible. Out there on the trails, putting one foot in front of the other, was the training ground for him when he decided to write a book.  Just another example of how running can have such a positive effect on our lives if we lace up our shoes and head out the door.

Great interview - I, of course, found it very interesting, though the direction on my writing is different than Michael's - I have zero interest in moving into fiction. He is inspiring in the way he has taken on a second career with such vigor.
