The Grit Doctor heads over the pond!

13 Mar

Some very exciting news from the Grit Doctor towers: Run Fat B!tch Run will be publishing in the US on the 2nd April under the title Get Off Your Ass and Run (which I think we can all agree with). It’s already got some amazing reviews:

“If you have a healthy body image and sense of humor, and need to give your motivation a kick in the pants, the Grit Doctor is for you!  Ruth’s combination of lashing and laughs will make you lace up and hit the ground running—no excuses.”
Kristin Armstrong, Contributing Editor for Runner’s World magazine and author of Mile Markers: The 26.2 Most Important Reasons Why Women Run

“If you need a fresh dose of incentive to get out (or back out) on the road, The Grit Doctor offers up a program of no-nonsense common sense laced with brutal honesty.”
Mina Samuels, author of Run Like a Girl

Get Off Your Ass and Run! is like having your best friend tell you to get real.” 
Kara Goucher, Olympic Distance Runner and author of Kara Goucher’s Running for Women

“As a runner who spends a good deal of time encouraging others to give it a whirl, I’m glad to have Get Off Your Ass and Run! as a resource to share. The balance between solid content, an intimate knowledge of the kinds of things that hand newbie runners up, and a tough-love sense of humor makes this a fun and motivating read.”
Deborah Reber, author of Run for Your Life: A Book for Beginning Women Runners

Preorder Get Off Your Ass and Run! from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound, and Powell’s

    Ruth – you’ll have to come over here and do a book tour! 😉 I like the original title though, but understand why it was probably changed for the market here. Hope it takes off! Big fan. Jo (expat Aussie in Seattle)

      So glad you like the book and yes, I would LOVE to come over and do a book tour – will have to sell a hell of a lot more copies first! Ha ha -I think the orignal title was considered a tad too harsh for the US…..thanks for the thumbs up and let me know how the running goes…Ruth
