Product description

About the Author

Why would anyone in their right mind want to run 155 miles in 7 days across the Sahara Desert? This book describes one woman's journey and explains, step-by-step, how you too, can complete the toughest foot race on earth. As a teenager growing up in the U.K. Nisha was exercise-averse and avoided breaking a sweat at all costs. Having moved from Wales to London in her twenties, she joined the gym with the aim of losing weight, but became bored rigid; exercise was a means to an end. As she strived to achieve the more traditional goals of settling down, graduating university and maintaining a successful career, it took a point of personal crisis for her to re-evaluate the way she was living her life. What started with a few short runs grew into a love of testing personal boundaries, eventually leading her to conquer the Marathon des Sables. Nisha is living proof that a little determination can go a long way in this race we call life.
