The Addicted Runner
The story of the author’s continuing quest to find himself through running – the highs and lows, the funny encounters and tragic mishaps, the hail-fellows well met and the bastards best forgotten – that have enlightened his journey of more than 25-plus years of uninterrupted days of pounding the pavement. What began as a casual morning jog has turned out to be the fulcrum of his existence, taking the author through every state in the United States to the Emerald Isle to the Virgin Islands to the beaches of Thailand. The miles have been endless, the people fascinating, the lessons learned enduring.
Available Male Tale
Marc David speaks from experience in his book Available Male Tale. He writes about a rocky re-entry to the dating experience and the hypocritical gears of the post-divorce mating machine with merciless truth and cleansing humor. And he hammers home each chapter with words of wisdom from the prophets of classic rock-and-roll. How does one survive as a single person in today’s world? Follow the journey as Marc leads the way.
