Summary

For listeners who enjoyed Alexandra Heminsley's Running Like a Girl and Bryony Gordon's Mad Girl, Running for My Life is a funny, heartfelt and inspirational story of one woman's marathon journey through mental illness.  

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.

A truly inspirational, touching and real story

Made me laugh, cry and inspired me to battle my own demons. Going for a run now.
