ITEN, KENYA – Running coach, exercise physiologist, and author Dr. Jason Karp signed a deal this week with Coaches Choice to write Coaching the Kenyans, a unique book that tells the story of an American coach living and coaching in Kenya, and how coaches and runners can benefit from his experience. It is scheduled to be published in 2023.
“It may not be a stretch to say that my entire career has led me to this moment,” said Dr. Karp, who is represented by literary agent Grace Freedson of Grace Freedson’s Publishing Network in New York. “To my knowledge, there has never been an American coach who has lived in Kenya to coach the Kenyan runners. By living and coaching in Kenya, this unique experience gives me the opportunity to tell a story and share some insights from coaching the world’s best runners.”
Coaching the Kenyans is Dr. Karp’s 14th book. His most well-known titles include Running Periodization, The Inner Runner, Running a Marathon For Dummies, and Running for Women.
