In the winter of 2001, Bill Watts stepped on the scale at nearly 200 pounds, and had difficulty walking up the four flights of stairs at his job. Plagued with stress, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, he set his sights for better health and living. Bill began running races from 5k's on the road, to ultramarathon trail races. Trying to fill the void of running books for "average" runners, he authored "Running for the Average Joe," a book that can help anyone achieve health and fitness at any age. Find out how you can take that first step and enjoy a lifetime of healthy living!
Ultramarathon runner and outdoor enthusiast, Marshall Ulrich, says this about the book:
"When Bill contacted me recently, asking me to write the foreword to his book, I thought back to our conversation at the marathon expo and remembered, “I could learn stuff from this guy.” Little did I know how much I could learn! Running for the Average Joe is absolutely the most comprehensive running book – no, the most comprehensive book on how to make a lifestyle change – that I have ever read (and I’ve read more than a few!). I invite and encourage you to delve into this book. But be careful… as you will get more than you bargained for. While it is a handbook chock full of information about running that you will want to reference well into the future, Running for the Average Joe is really a book that can teach you how to enjoy a better life."
