"If you've ever wept "Why do I want to run?", your answer is here." (Caitlin Moran, author of HOW TO BE A WOMAN)
"Her honesty is winning ... What's truly excellent about this book, though, is its generosity. Heminsley wants to help other women to run and she has provided a practical section at the back, where she explains how to overcome injury, how to buy the right gear (particularly the correct bra), exactly what you will need if you build up to running marathons – surprisingly fascinating even if, like me, you have no plans to do so." (Miranda Sawyer Observer)
"Candid, funny and inspiring, this is part personal journey, part “how to” guide for female runners." (Sam Murphy Runners World)
"The new memoir from Alexandra Heminsley is a meditation (slash romp) on running, life and love. Penned in her own inimitable style, the book is a funny tread through the raft of body insecurities and mental anguish we all go through when we put on our trainers." (Grazia)
"This book is an emotional whirlwind split into two perfect halves. First is the story of Heminsley’s own running journey – from being certain that she wasn’t a runner at all, to completing five marathons . . . The second half offers the most practical advice on ‘how to run like a girl’, invaluable, as once you finish the book, even the most unenthusiastic of sportswomen will be longing to pull on the Lycra and run for the hills." (Psychologies)
Funny and honest, this is the story of how an ordinary, curvy woman ended up running five marathons.See all Product description

I ran 4 miles non stop a few times over the last week. In those moments I felt like staying in or as soon as I come back to stretch, I pick up my iPad and read to encourage and motivate me. For the first time ever...I've thought about running a marathon!
The author talks you through some of her runs and then how to prepare. The book is divided into a story narrative about her start with running...which was from ground zero...and then a practical advice section for how to start and stay running.
Highly recommend for someone who has never run, like me who is returning to running after many many many years and those who may be in a slump and needing motivation to keep going.
Whether you are a flirting with the idea of running, stark terrified of running or like me, already running three times a week, this is a must read.
