Welcome to the Official site of the Penguin community

 In 1996 as a university music teacher and member of the Dead Runners Society, I began writing about my experiences as a "penguin" athlete - once an overweight couch potato with a glut of bad habits, including smoking and drinking, at the age of 43 I looked mid-life in the face and started running and writing about it.

My chronicles, books and ebooks have inspired hundreds of thousands of men and women to run for fun, fitness, and self-affirmation, and today there are thousands of Penguins worldwide - some just had the courage to start, some are already part of the Penguin Brigade, and some other have become accidental athletes.

Waddle on, friends.
