    5 out of 5 stars 57

Over the previous decade, Bella had been so paralysed by her fears that exercise was the very last thing on her mind. So that first run didn’t last very long. But to her surprise, she was back out there the next day. And the day after that. She began to set herself achievable goals - to run 5k in under 30 minutes, to walk to work every day for a week, to attempt 10 push-ups in a row. Before she knew it, her mood was lifting for the first time in years, and she had swapped hiding in her house for fresh air, unknown roads and running tracks.

Bella is honest, raw and hilarious in this. Truly inspiring and relatable. I started couch to 5k yesterday even though I’ve run 4 half marathons - I had a poor mental health year and took 1 year or so off pounding the pavements. This has inspired me to get out there again.
