5.0 out of 5 stars just the read I needed
I have just turned 40 years old. In 2011 I ran a marathon at 4:00:44 and I have been training as a nurse since so I've not had much time to train. I have made a plan to run an ultra next year and I am so happy to have read this account of someone similar to me. I thought maybe it's my mid life crisis, maybe I am being daft but, thanks to reading this I feel energised...

2.0 out of 5 stars Very short and lacking in detail.
Not as inspiring as I thought it would be, and incredibly short. Not enough detail or depth for me I'm afraid.

I have just made a YouTube Chanel called 'running the hill' where I aim to share my journey too. Great read thanks Paul.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read for the "ultra-curious", 3 Jan 2014

This review is from: Seeking Ultra - Six Months From My First Jog to My First Ultramarathon - at 43 years old - a running story (Kindle Edition)
Very easy and interesting read. Couple of useful tips for the mid-pack runner who is "ultra-curious" which I hope to use. Would have been 5 stars if there was a triumphant/happy ending epilogue (although not necessary but when I read I seem to be a romantic) but kept my interest to finish in a single sitting.

A good window into the world of ultra running with interesting comments on embarrassing problems and positive thoughts on why people run these crazy distances.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting read but a bit short, 10 May 2014

This review is from: Seeking Ultra - Six Months From My First Jog to My First Ultramarathon - at 43 years old - a running story (Kindle Edition)
Well written honest account but felt it was a bit short - more like a magazine article than a book. Would be better to have held back then continued on his ongoing (hopefully) success in ultra running. Gives a good insight into the sport and makes me think about what Im thinking of doing.

This review is from: Seeking Ultra - Six Months From My First Jog to My First Ultramarathon - at 43 years old - a running story (Kindle Edition)
A well told journey of the ups and downs while striving for the challenge that is an ultra marathon. Paul tells it as it is in an open, straight from the heart account. A real page turner. My only complaint - it was over far too quickly.
