This was a book that came into the local e-library a while ago: I had to put myself on a waiting list to be able to get hold of it. Now I can see why, I read it cover to cover in just 6 days. It’s a quite unbelievable story.
I got this book free on my iPad, I think it’s because it’s a new series, and they hope to hook you in to buy more. I was not sure what to expect, I haven’t ever read anything by is author. It’s a mystery / action / humour storyline, absolutely hilarious, and I would highly recommend it! I would say women would like it more, but don’t let me prejudice you if you want to have a look at it.
This is a wonderful book, full of heart felt stories, race reports, and tons of practical to for all types of athletes, so there’s definitely something you will take away with you when you read this book.

I kind of can relate to that, having come from fat and unfit to out of the blue deciding to run a half marathon, ending up on team GB. It sounded like a good book.
