Going back to the book, Julie is covering all basics as well as helping you to realise that a thick skin is required to stop the hecklers and disapproving fellow runners from knocking your confidence. This is an important thing to think about.
I’ve signed up for my first marathon in the Spring and it’ll be a tough one but I’m hoping there is more to come in the following chapters which will help me prepare. I am loving the 60 second rule as it is definitely something I need to apply to my running and I’ll practice this from now on.
It is an honest guide from a woman who has been out there battling more than just a race and she gives her readers plenty to consider before doing the full monty.
This is a must have for anyone thinking of running a marathon for the first time!
As other reviews have said the book is written and in a way it’s as if you are having a chat with Julie herself. I love the way the book is written, with all the information but with explanation and not full of jargon that you honestly wouldn’t understand.
Even if your not in a plus size body this book will definitely help if you want to run your first marathon in 6-12mths time!
Julie’s writing is easy to read, full of humour as well as great practical tips & advice.
Sharing her own experiences so honestly-you feel like you’re in the room with her enjoying a chat with a cup of tea!! Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down!! Last time I finished a book in a day was ‘Scream if you want to run faster’ by the same author!!
Running my 2nd marathon next year (my toe nails still haven’t recovered from the first -see chapter 11) and this will be my go to guide!! And I will be thinking about ‘what would marathon runner Dianne do’!!!
Seriously tho, Julie really has a way of cutting to the chase and making a very good case for runners of all sizes to believe they can and should run a marathon.
Read it at your own peril 😂
