A Wexford man who overcame depression and ran seven marathons in six days, has written a self-help book which is already an Amazon bestseller.

Life coach Eoin Ryan, organiser of the successful Pettitts SuperValu Wexford half marathon, will launch the new publication at the Swan Training Centre in The Faythe tonight (Tuesday) at 7 p.m.

The book is called 'Outcomerun' and can be summed up in one sentence, according to Eoin – 'Positivity will give you the edge in life'.

The book contains seven pillars of life-changing advice for mind and body to open up 'a new life of choices, opportunities and wellness'.

The concept links the author's two passions – life coaching and running.

Eoin is no stranger to adversity – he was made redundant three times and suffered from depression.

After the third time losing his job, he set up his own business.

He competes in Ironman races and ran an astonishing seven marathons in six days for charity.

His next ambition is to take part in the Marathon de Sables in the Sahara Desert in 2014, a race which has the reputation of being the world's toughest.

The book is the culmination of an exciting few months for Eoin.

He applied for the Dragon's Den television programme last December and was accepted as a candidate.

In his pitch about the self-help programme Outcomerun, he committed to writing a book which needed to be completed in two months.

'I was average at English in school. I set out a clear and structured format of what I was going to write and the rest took care of itself,' he said.

The book has already made a mark by becoming an Amazon number one bestseller in the self-help category.
