Here is a message from Joe Ellis.
My name is Joe Ellis. I'm a longtime
distance runner and novelist. My work has been featured in Runner's World and
reviewed in the Washington Post. I wanted to get the word out that I'm offering
my latest novel, The Old Man and the
Marathon, for free to distance runners and walkers. It can be downloaded
for free at www.smashwords.com for Kindle, Nook, iPad, computer, etc. or at
Amazon.com or BN.com for 99 cents. I consider this novel a labor of love and my
gift to distance running community. It is modeled after Hemingway's The Old Man
and the Sea. It's about an old man who takes on the challenge of a marathon
despite a history of sciatica.
