Reviews

'An inspiring book, especially for anyone who's thinking about running for the first time'. Red Magazine online 'Her book reminds us running isn't only for the fast' Sport Magazine 'This isn't just a book, it's a community between the leaves. A community that spans the marathon cities, taking me on a roller-coaster tour.' Run Mummy Run Blog 'The heartiest recommendation I can give for this glorious book is that having read it, I wanted immediately to go for a run, and to laugh while doing so. An absolute tonic - and a very funny read.' -- Paul Tonkinson, comedian and Runner's World UK columnist 'A terrific insight into the strange and strangely beautiful mind of a runner. We've all been there... although most of us have kept our clothes on!' -- Phil Hewitt, author of Keep on Running 'A glorious celebration of life on two feet and all we can learn from it. I defy anyone to read this without wanting to grab their trainers, dress up as a fairy, and find a friend to laugh away a run with.' -- Elizabeth Hufton, Editor of Women's Running UK 'Lisa Jackson has been there and got the running T-shirt, having experienced running highs and lows from every viewpoint. This book takes you on a running rollercoaster of Lisa's experiences and shows you why it's worth the journey.' -- Liz Yelling, two-time British Olympian and former training partner to Paula Radcliffe 'A wonderfully written, inspirational and philosophical book, not just about running but also about life and the many challenges it can throw at us. Heartbreakingly sad in some chapters, hilarious in others, it's a great read. Lisa's amazing multiple marathon achievements and the life lessons she has gained make for compelling reading.' -- Christina Macdonald, Launch Editor of Women's Running UK and author of Run Yourself Fit 'Jackson reads like a barefoot romp in the park on a rainy day: refreshing, quirky, deeply insightful, and not afraid to get her feet dirty!' -- Lorraine Moller, Olympic medallist and Boston Marathon winner 'Lisa's book shows how amazing all of us who run really are: how running can take us to so many places inside ourselves - and around the world. And she really does want everyone to go out and experience some of those runs first hand.' -- Ultrarunner Pam Reed, veteran of over 100 marathons and eighty 100-milers 'The often hilarious tale of Lisa, an adorable fruitcake of a runner: she's not fast, but she's fun, and behind the interesting hats and colourful gear is a girl of great determination and grit, who turns up marathon after marathon, and gets them done with a smile!' -- Traviss Willcox, Guinness World Record Holder and Chairman of the 100 Marathon Club 'Lisa's book is a great read! It's not only inspirational but gives practical advice to aspiring marathoners and ultramarathoners.' -- Jeff Galloway, US Olympian, designer of the Run Walk Run Method 'Love it! Whether you are a seasoned racer or nervous newbie you can't help but be inspired by Lisa. Her warm and honest storytelling will have you laughing and gasping in equal measure - and then you'll go out and put your running shoes on, which is what Lisa would want!' -- Danielle Sellwood, co-founder of Sportsister.com 'A truly inspirational read for runners of all levels. I cried, I laughed out loud, and then I couldn't wait to go for a run.' -- Sally Brown, journalist 'Lisa's approach to life, marathon running and writing about marathon running is so joyful and infectious, it's impossible to resist. This book will inspire you to run 100 marathons and keep laughing every step of the way.' -- Rhalou Allerhand, Runner's World UK Online News Editor
