It's Christmas and, because I've been especially good this year, Santa has rewarded me with an early release of my book The Lazy Runner. It's available now on Amazon and iBooks for reading on your iPhone, iPad or computer. You can also get it from the Kobo store and pretty much any other purveyor of fine ebooks.
Here's what the publishers say about it...
The book offers tips on motivation and how to make running enjoyable – a practical, “what I wish I'd known” side, including buying kit and choosing races – plus a narrative that traces Laura’s progress from the sofa in front of the TV to running a sub 4-hour marathon.
It’s an inspirational story, and an essential beginner’s guide. The book follows Laura Fountain’s highs and lows from starting out as a novice runner to completing her first marathon, and then setting about chiselling seconds off her personal best. At first unable to run 400 metres without stopping, Laura has now completed five marathons, the most recent in under four hours.
As it's Christmas, I'm sharing the love and giving you a little gift too. If you read the book and post a review (it doesn't have to be flattering because I'm all for editorial integrity) either of your blog or on Amazon, I'll send you one of my very lovely pin badges.
I have 50 badges to send out, so get in quick! Email me a link to your review and your address and the postal fairies will do the rest (providing you live in the UK - sorry).
Thanks to everyone for reading my blog over the past few years. Without you the book wouldn't have happened.
