New Book on Hundreds by Julie Welch

In a new 250 page book, 'Out on Your Feet', sports writer and former Strider Editor, Julie Welch, describes how from her first encounters with long distance walking and the LDWA she was enthused to prepare for and take part in the 2008 Yoredale Hundred. The book reflects Julie's own experiences and those of many walkers and LDWA members that she has got to know. It highlights both physical and mental aspects of long distance walking along with a great deal of background and many anecdotes.

Julie Welch's 'Out on Your Feet: The Hallucinatory World of Hundred-Mile Walking' will be published in September by Aurum at 16.99. LDWA members can order a copy at a pre-publication price of 14 including postage and packing; details are given on page 21 of August Strider.
