Description

'If you've ever wept, "Why Do I Want To Run?" your answer is here.' Caitlin Moran

Alexandra Heminsley had high hopes: the arse of an athlete, the waist of a supermodel, the speed of a gazelle. Defeated by gyms and bored of yoga, she decided to run.

Her first attempt did not end well.

Six years later, she has run five marathons in two continents.

But, as her dad says, you run with your head as much as with your legs. So, while this is a book about running, it's not just about running.

You could say it's about ambition (yes, getting out of bed on a rainy Sunday morning counts), relationships (including talking to the intimidating staff in the trainer shop), as well as your body (your boobs don't have to wobble when you run). But it's also about realising that you can do more than you ever thought possible.

Very funny, very honest and very emotional, whether you're in serious training or thinking about running for the bus, this is a book for anyone who after wine and crisps for supper a few too many times thinks they might . . . just might . . . like to run like a girl.

Customer Reviews

A must read for the beginner runner

I have just recently taken up running & a work colleague recommended this book to me for inspiration. All i can say is that it helped me get through my first marathon ( fun run ) and has given me the inspiration to keep going no matter what excuse i may have. The book is well written and either had me laughing or crying ( thou this was not a bad thing- found parts of it v emotional). All in all a fantastic read.

Read this immediately!

This book is inspiring, honest and funny.. I loved it
