This has to be one of the best books I’ve read in a very long time:
As a runner WIP (that’s Work In Progress – I’m getting there!) and a woman, running can be daunting and crowds can be intimidating. It’s all too easy to put off those planned jogs – oh I’m too tired; I’ve too much (house)work to do; the Great British Bake Off is on…..-oh wait, that’s a legitimate excuse. But what this book does is encourage you to tie up the laces of your old trainers and get out there. You cares what other people think – do it for yourself.
Well written, funny, engaging, with emotional ups and downs that make you want to grab a marathon training plan by the balls. I couldn’t put it down and I’ve already passed it on to a friend who will be tackling her first marathon in three and a half weeks.
You don’t have to run fast, you just have to run.
