Pressestimmen

"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)

Werbetext

Funny and honest, this is the story of how an ordinary, curvy woman ended up running five marathons.

Very inspirational book! 2. Juni 2013
Von mcw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I liked this book so much I bought two more copies for friends who, admittedly, already love to run. Still... I wanted them to know that I *get* it after reading this book. She is absolutely right in that we have everything we need to get moving. You just have to start somewhere. And after I read this book, I went running for the first time in more than 30 years... and survived to write this review!

Made my first few weeks of running easier and joyful! 15. April 2014
Von Corrie C. Mims - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book has made me laugh until I could hardly breathe and cry just as hard. I have always been the least athletic person in my family. I was the one with the best grades and the nerd, so I found excuses not to even try physically in PE at school. I told myself it just wasn't my "thing," even though I secretly envied those who were athletic and fit. I started a 5k training program a couple weeks ago, and heard myself saying inwardly, "You can't do this. You aren't physically strong enough." Being a cancer survivor and having a rare lung disease would be easy excuses for me, but they taught me that I am stronger than I thought- and now I want to be a runner. Just for me. I want to prove to myself that I can use my body to move me forward, not just be a victim and suffer its illnesses and pains. This book has given me such courage through the first two weeks of training, and I know I will reread it over and over.

Loved this book. Coming from someone who started running at 56 .. I appreciated its honesty and humor! Never quit trying!

Well-written but dwells in generalities 6. August 2014
Von A. Kate - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is serviceable if, like me, you really want to read about running and all the trappings (compression socks!), but it's disappointing as a journey of self-discovery (and it's actually pretty light on the trappings). The writing was good enough to make me well up during the narrative of her first marathon when she catches sight of her family cheering her on (and her mom's voice is pretty funny), but most of it vacillates between feelings of insecurity, like a LOT of sturm und dang over entering the threshold of a running store (something I don't relate to as an American, i.e., consumer (even being a girl and all)) and euphoric feelings of communal bonding with crowds, other runners, friends raising money for charity.

For a personal narrative, it's not actually all that personal. You wouldn't even know the author is a journalist other than from the flap copy. She lives in a Flat, has had unspecified but universal Heartbreak, and later the presence of a new Boyfriend appears to be noted. I don't need her to spill her guts in a book about running. But she's also vague about her training runs and nary mentions any numbers or times or how she worked up from a 5k on only her second run in her whole life to a marathon. It's all about people cheering her on. She runs a good many races but mentions only one of her marathon times as being '19 minutes more than her intended goal of 4:30.' I get that running is not about numbers for everyone and I didn't read this to read a training log, but it would have been nice to get a sense of progression from what she ran in her first marathon.

Got me to put my runnings shoes back on again! 9. Oktober 2013
Von Catwoman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Having been an on/off runner for many years (currently in an off phase)I needed something to inspire me to start running again. This did it! Written by a writer, who happens to run (rather than a runner who can't really write)it was well put together, weaving together both the practicalities of running together with her own story of going from couch potato (well, not quite!)to marathon runner. Its not too technical like so many running books/magazines are, but comes from the heart and makes you believe that you could also run. That really, any of us could. So, whilst not up to marathons, I am completing my first 10k run this weekend, and am thinking seriously about competing in a half marathon next year. It worked for me!
