The running fairy, 8 Aug 2010
A candid, good humoured and self deprecating guide to marathon training in general and via one 'normal' womans journey. This is without doubt the funniest book i have read in months. it is interspersed with very sensible and practical advice, but more than that it helps those of us not blessed by the running fairy to feel normal as we struggle with our training.
i thought it was only me who ended out hot and red faced and just wanted to curl up on a park bench after a long run - happily it appears there is at least one other person who goes through th same :)
If you want some sensible advice and a good chuckle this is the book for you!
