Suffering from depression but desperate for 'normality', Rachel Cullen found herself in failing relationships, the wrong career and a reliance on alcohol and chocolate to get her through each day. Stuck in an endless cycle of mental misery, she put on a pair of old trainers. She'd never been able to think of herself as a 'runner' before, and the first time she forced herself out the door, she knew it would hurt. Everywhere. She just didn't realise how much it would heal her, too.

It’s definitely not as good as some of the running stories I’ve read, such as Running like a girl. It talks through the authors while life from a young age and I found those chapters uninteresting. I stick with it and the second half is definitely better with more running stories but it’s not one I’ll read again.
