Product Description

Product Description

"...Chris Foreman, went from being a confessed couch potato who couldnt even run for the bus, to running The Wall, a 69 mile course along Hadrian's Wall. This incredible improvement is described in his new book Ultratortoise..."

Hazel Sillver, Journalist and article writer for Women's Running Magazine 2014
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This book contains all of my previous 3 shorter journals combined together for the first time, edited for a fresh perspective with an extra 15,000 words and many more pictures. In total this book now has over 55+ thousand words, many images and online links to further detailed information and maps of routes and other online sources.

This book covers my personal diary, training plans and general waffling-on across the 4 years it took me to earn the medals now hanging up on the wall in my hallway.

How, trying to avoid getting run over by an ambulance, I ran into the back of a 25 stone man during my first half marathon and how I took down a Womble in the London Marathon. Also, how I managed to run almost across England in a 69 mile ultra and somehow manage to make it over the finish line still conscious and on my own two feet.

Along the way I hope it entertains and informs you enough to perhaps consider getting out to run a little or even run further than you may do already, and certainly to look past the limitations we give ourselves.

The book constantly explores the question - how can the bottom of your feet help you sort out stuff going on in the back of your head?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultra read 11 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well worth a read for any aspiring ultra runner, heightened entertainment for me as I live on the route of"The Wall" so know the geography, plus Chris's journey mirrors my own but just not committed to enter "The Wall" as yet!!!
Well recommended read for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRULY INSPIRATIONAL 22 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A truly inspirational read. Once I started found I could not put it down. The only disappointing part was the end - I wanted to carry on reading!! Will certainly be recommending this book to the members of Bridgnorth Running Club.

Carry on writing Chris.
