I'm also always on the lookout for new (to me) restaurants to try in London. If you have any recommendations, send them along. We'll be staying near Piccadilly Circus.
I'll say upfront that I loved this book right from the first page. While on the surface it is an excellent how-to book about learning to run and love the body that you are in right now, it is also a primer for anyone who wants to improve their life.
The book is available as an e-book on Amazon.
