About this deal

Funny, candid and motivating, this book will not only help you succeed in your marathon quest but empower you to complete the distance any way you want.

It is important that we continue to promote these adverts as our local businesses need as much support as possible during these challenging times.If you’re new to the world of ultrarunning, this will give you a great picture of many big names and races and you’ll come away knowing a lot more about the scene and who’s who. Part of what I love about ultra running is that there is always a tale to tell as something bizarre/funny/horrific (delete as applicable) seems to happen on these journeys. My favourite section highlighted the oldest known marathon runners and their personal stories, where you get to meet awes-inspiring people like Fauja Singh; the 100 year old marathon runner who cannot appear in the Guinness Book of records as he has no birth certificate, and Sister Madonna who is nicknamed the “Iron Nun” because she has completed an incredible 45 Ironman triathlons (plus lots of marathons! Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. It may also include different climatic conditions (eg ice, snow, humidity, cold water, mud or heat).

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).WHEN IT COMES TO RUNNING A MARATHON, IT'S NOT ACTUALLY ABOUT MAKING IT TO THE FINISH LINE, IT'S ABOUT HAVING THE GUTS TO MAKE IT TO THE START LINE. In the film, they asked Forrest if he's running for women's rights, the homeless, world peace, the environment or animals.

The “Airaforce 2” suits me perfectly – two beautifully balanced and reassuringly secure 300ml bottles nestled inside a comfortable and lightly padded adjustable belt, with a small pocket for those little extras you might need. For those that don’t know, Vassos Alexander was the Sports presenter on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2.

That very race features later on in Running Up That Hill, Vassos Alexander’s latest book which explores the highs and lows of going that bit further. Mimi’s name had come up in a few other books about the ultra-running scene, so I knew in my heart that she must be somewhere on the awesome scale, but I was unprepared for just how AMAZING this woman turned out to be…. She has also completed several Ultra-runs – including the amazing “Comrades Marathon” in South Africa – proving that speed is no definition of a “good runner”.

In this beautifully designed and not-at-all scary marathon training guide, Chris Evans breaks down how we can all get ourselves off our sofas, up on our feet and onto that start line. Chris Evans began his broadcasting career at Manchester's Piccadilly Radio, going on to become a household name in TV and radio.

From Mimi’s first ever joyful outdoor 10 miler to her latest world record-breaking run, the book sweeps you along. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. On the other hand, I have not yet tackled this most inspiring of distances, but was still swept along by Phil’s descriptions of the places, the atmospheres, the pre- and post-race feelings, and the joys, victories and disappointments along the way. I was very much looking forward to reading this, as I very much enjoyed Phil’s debut book “ Keep on Running“, charting his own personal journey from couch potato to marathon runner.Seller has stated it will dispatch the item within 1 working day upon receipt of cleared payment - opens in a new window or tab . What attracted me to this book was the promise that it was written by someone who describes herself as “ordinary” and only started running in her late 30s – maybe someone I could relate to even though I am not an ultra-runner myself. When I was training for the London Marathon 2023, I used this as a journal to document my runs and training, how I felt , I didn't follow the plan exactly but I did most of it, I just loved writing my runs and fuels in, and kept notes, I found it useful,more like a diary of my running, I liked Chris advise too. I myself have always found that I get more from a run – whether a training session or a race – when running with other people; enjoying the views; commenting on the things we spot along the way; putting the world to rights; helping and supporting if someone if struggling, or being helped and supported if I am struggling… and it turns out that Lisa is the same! I was already a fan of Virgin Radio Sports Presenter Vassos, and love hearing him discuss his running exploits.
