What are people saying about the book
So I read the book and I signed up for the10k. Yes, I'm training for a 10k. This book is a really easy read and has definitely motivated me to go for it. Worth the money for sure.
I have bought so many books to help me improve my jogging and try to get me motivated to tackle a 10k run, but this one was the first book that actually connected with people who are total beginners/improvers and need some inspiration from someone who has been there before and who wasn't a 'born athlete' but normal like most of us. Would definitely recommend it for beginners/improvers or someone that just needs that kickstart.
Wow a book that is actually written for the true first time runner, and by someone who acknowledges how hard it is for us larger women to get bitten by the running bug. Great advice, great tips. Looking forward to working out my plan and getting started on my goal of running a 10k. Thank you Julie
