For training plans there are better books but for motivation this can't be beaten.
Thanks Dawn and I'll let you know how I get on!
Instead, this woman is a bit full of herself. She seems to think she's extremely funny. She complains about running, hates it. And I think she mentions the word "spandex" at least 20 times. Get over it!
I believe that she was about 25 when she wrote this... or at the very least not yet very mature. Good on her though to profit from running 1 marathon.
I'd advise any potential buyers to first go to her site and watch her Youtube videos. I wouldn't have bought this book. It's entertaining at times to read, but if you are gearing up for a marathon I think there are far better books to focus on than this one.

Total rubbish! How can one woman whine so much about a topic she's chosen to write a book about! What a waste of just over 3 quid. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Liz R.
I love running and I don't think that reading about someone not enjoying running and her constant complaints will encourage anyone else to do it. I could not finish the book.Published 21 months ago by Clb
