Sarah Palin recently told People Magazine she is working on a new fitness and wellbeing book with her family.
“Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!”
Palin says she will discuss the topics in “our unique and motivating book,” and added that her family’s method “works.”
The Huffington Post notes Palin has been a dedicated runner for years and once finished the 2005 Anchorage marathon in 3:59, two minutes faster than Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan’s 4:01 finishing time in 1990 when he was 20 years old.
In 2009, Dan Simmons interviewed Palin in Runners World, where Palin explains that she grew up in a running family.
“My parents caught the running craze in the mid ’70s and we grew up doing family runs. I’ve been running now easy for 35 years.”
Politico mentioned that it’s not clear whether Palin has a contract for the book, but she’s already got her pitch down. “We promise you what we do works and allows a fulfilling quality of life and sustenance anyone can enjoy.”
Barbara Walters selected Palin as one of America’s “10 Most Fascinating People of 2008″ for an ABC special in December 2008, and in April 2010, Palin was selected as one of the world’s 100 most influential people by TIME Magazine.
Speaking of Palin, Ted Nugent commented:
“We who are driven to be assets to our families, communities and our beloved country connect with the principles that Sarah Palin embodies.”
In Palin’s book, “Going Rogue: An American Life,” Palin discusses growing up in the wilds of Alaska, meeting her lifelong love, the importance of family; and describes life as a high-profile working mother.
