    You’ve really captured it all. I love how you’ve weaved stories and memories throughout it, described characters and situations and all the time sounding like you rather than like you writing a book.

    It’s really funny and very readable. It really did make me laugh and cry and made me want to keep reading. It’s both inspirational and interesting. What more could you want from a book?

  2. Ruth

    I enjoyed it so much! You’re a very instinctive writer, and your idiolect (the way you speak and your mannerisms) comes through really strongly, it’s really endearing. I could read it in your voice. I totally cried at the end. On a side-note to the amazing running adventure, I thought your honest portrayal of the peri-menopause and of your personal struggles was equally – if not more – inspiring to me as a youngish woman. People aren’t often brave enough to discuss that stuff, so I’d like to extend a personal thank you.

    Loved the book, and your total honesty about the lows, the inevitable tummy troubles and self-doubt… as a 50 year old wanna be adventurer it’s truly inspirational and shows that middle-aged women are still more than capable of extraordinary and epic challenges!

    I love the format- one marathon per chapter, making it an easy book to pick up and dip into, although I found that once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. I must admit to having something in my eye when you finished! An inspirational read

    I think the first book to actually make me cry. I’ve always tried to portray a true aspect to my training showing that it isnt all nice. You did that with such aplomb though. It was almost as if we’d just sat and chatted instead of me reading. Loved it.
