If you are considering addressing your health in 2019, for whatever reason, Bella's book is a good starting point. Her first run lasted three minutes. In the painful steps she took to deal with her crippling depression and anxiety, the very act of slipping on trainers must have taken enormous focus.
She says "running was my hope. Or maybe running gave me hope..." It's certainly helping to do that for me.
This is a great book that I would recommend to runners and non-runners alike (if you manage to get hold of a copy!). As a side note the book is a beautiful blue glossy hardback which I love and am reluctant to move from my coffee table!
