“We actually made it to mile seven without taking any walk breaks, because we were so busy trying to do math while pretending there was a chance we’d actually finish at all.”
I really loved this book and yes I’m going to review it even though it’s a short book, it’s only 110 pages via kindle. I was able to get it free and was thankful that my running buddies suggested it.
This is a must read for any runner or individual thinking about running. Personally, I just started running last October and I haven’t been able to train consistently due to having a young family. I can relate to MOST if not all of these circumstances and I think any runner at one point or another can as well. Since I just signed up for my FIRST half marathon [for those of you who don’t run, that’s a whopping 13.1 miles!] and have been just as consistently inconsistently training for it.
Everything in this is relatable as well as hilarious.This is a comedy/diary of a runner and if you have the time, I would recommend it. It’s a great doctors office read, or hair appointment. Heck, read it anywhere any time! Dana L. Ayers is accurate and hilarious.
Just saw this — thanks so much for writing a review! I’m so glad you liked my book — “inconsistent” runners unite! haha
Thank you for writing it! As I just ran my first half 11/1 .. I found myself having ‘moments’ and had to laugh because I was thinking about you and your stories which got me through! :}
