Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will be writing a fitness book, People Magazine and GretaWire reported yesterday. Gov. Palin’s daughter, Bristol confirmed the reports in an interview with E! Online. Details on a publisher, publication date, and book tour are not yet available.
Athletics have defined and charted Gov. Palin’s course since an early age, a point documented in her first book, Going Rogue, in Our Sarah, co-authored by her father and brother, Chuck Heath, Sr., and Jr., and on her Athletic Accomplishments page.
Gov. Palin documented her running of a private marathon in Going Rogue. She ran a half-marathon the day after her Indianola speech. Quarter and half-marathons are a part of her daily routine, which is chronicled in Our Sarah. Runners World profiled Gov. Palin in 2009.
Gov. Palin’s defining athletic accomplishment was a winning basketball shot made as she played with a broken ankle. She chops her own firewood, hunts, kick-boxes, and throws a powerful fastball.
Gov. Palin enjoys a low-carb, high-protein diet, but is not adverse to high-calorie comfort foods. She’s written about her love of S’Mores, and MooseTracks is her known favorite flavor of ice cream. Gov. Palin is able to consume these fattening foods, because her very active body burns them right off.
