Ripley's new book: The Remarkable...Revealed will be in stores on August 7th, 2007.
You will see a familiar face on pg. 241: me.
Ripley's honored me with inclusion in their newest book for running 52 marathons in 52 consecutive weekends last year. As a young fan of the Ripley's show with Jack Palance and his daughter co-hosting ,as well as the numerous books I read in the libraries when I was supposed to be doing homework, I cannot say how absolutely "cool" this is to be part of the Ripley's legacy.
Sure, there are many other adjectives to aptly describe my feelings but when I was first contacted by Ripley's last year about their decision to do so if I completed the task, the first word that came to my mind was one of a 10 year-old Dane: "Cool!"
So this is just a little heads-up for those of you interested in getting the book. You can bet I will get one. For the kid in all of us (and the one that is still very much present in me) who love to see what wonders there are in the world, I may get two!
