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!
