It also moved me into my trainers and out for a run! -- Ruth Field A searingly honest account of Rachel's amazing journey from sedentary teenager, lacking in confidence and self-esteem, through to accomplished and inspirational member of the running community. She kept me engaged from start to finish, with plenty of laughs along the way, and I'd thoroughly recommend this book to runners everywhere. -- Tom Williams, Global COO of parkrun and co-host of the Marathon Talk podcast It's so inspirational to read how Rachel's discovery of a passion for running helped her to overcome her mental health struggles. For Rachel, running became so much more than purely keeping fit. It became something which enabled her to fully conquer the battles of severe anxiety and self-doubt. It's heartwarming to learn how Rachel has been able to -- Jo Pavey, medal-winning long-distance runner I love this book for showing how with sheer determination and dogged tenacity you can overcome great difficulties, and that sport, from whatever point or age that you start, can change your life. She might even persuade me that one day I too could love running. -- Louise Minchin, BBC journalist and presenter Written wittily, honestly and with a "take no crap" attitude, I could feel the warmth of [Rachel] as a person in her writing. Anyone who is hungry for change, looking for "the light" or even running their first marathon and needing a little insight; this book is FOR YOU! I loved every chapter of this book. -- Lipstick & Trainers blog What a heartfelt, moving, honest journey of self-discovery... this is a book you have to pick up in 2018. Rachel is a natural writer...
