Concern over Sarah Palin's thin appearance prompted the 2008 Vice Presidential nominee and TV personality to reveal a bit of news: She's working on a new fitness and wellbeing book with her family, Palin told People Magazine.
"Our family is writing a book on fitness and self-discipline focusing on where we get our energy and balance as we still eat our beloved homemade comfort foods!" Palin wrote to People, adding that her family's method "works."
This isn't Palin's first foray into the fitness space. She's graced the cover of Runner's World magazine, but she was more than just a model: She's a long time and dedicated runner who regularly outpaces other Beltway jocks. For example, she finished the 2008 Anchorage marathon in 3:59 -- two minutes under current VP nominee and P90X enthusiast Paul Ryan's 4:01 finishing time in 1990 when he was 20 years old, according to the Washington Post.
Palin has been quoted as saying that she grew up doing "family runs" with her parents. She was a high school track star and earned the nickname "Sarah Barracuda" for her agressive prowess on the basketball court.
It's unclear whether or not Palin and her family are in contract with a publisher.
