Clients book “The Comrades Marathon – Not Just a Race”

One of the best things about working in the real estate industry is the people you meet and the stories/experiences they have to tell.

Recently I discovered one of my clients had become an author. I was amazed because this particular client is a father of 4 young children, has a challenging job that already keeps him busy, so to have time to write a book!

But when I found out the book was about his pursuit and completion of an 87km marathon called “Comrades Marathon” in South Africa I was speechless.

Justin’s book is about his training for the race (1900km in 9 months) (e.g. before he had even started the race he had gone through 6 pairs of runners!) and the race.

Did I mention that Justin also raised $85,000 for The Cerebral Palsy Foundation from his supporters! His book The Comrades Marathon – Not Just a Race is $20 and you can buy a copy from Beach & Bay Realty.

Justin and his very supportive wife Stephanie are continuing to raise money for The Cerebral Palsy foundation with 50% of all proceeds from the book sales going to this foundation.

I have just bought my copy!

    What a fantastic achievement. Makes you believe anything is possible! (If you work hard enough of course)
    Congrats Justin, you have done an amazing thing for both yourself and charity. Inspirational stuff!

    Hey there

    I was wanting to know where I could buy a copy of this book. I met a lady who worked with Justin and told me about it. My boyfriend is running the race next May and thought it would be a brilliant stocking filler for christmas. I’ve had a look online but the bigger bookstores don’t stock it! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Kerry
