Prolific author Martin Knox released Time is Gold 18th November 2020.

The book is intellectual entertainment, a novel and thrilling running adventure inspired by science and philosophy, that will have you thinking long after you reach the last page. It explores the metaphysics of time for ‘flow’ as optimal achievement, with strategies to use in training, competition and artistic performance. Cathy Freeman and other top performers may already be using this technique. Performers of any ability level could benefit.


It’s 2026 in a beachside town in Australia and schoolgirl Maxi Fleet has a goal of competing in the Olympic marathon and breaking the World record.

    She wins a scholarship and is trained by a team experienced in endurance, physics, psychology, neuroscience and Zen running. They extend her physical, mental and emotional boundaries. Jack Cram, a PhD student of physics has an innovative theory about stretching time. Will he be able to coordinate her coaching for success in elite competition? This is the story of two ambitious personalities in a growing love relationship, who explore marathon running, dissecting its pain and rewards.

Maxi and Jack give their venture everything they have. If Maxi achieves her goal, Jack’s theory will be established and widely adopted by athletes, performers and entrepreneurs. If she doesn’t, who has more to lose:  Jack or Maxi?
