Vassos Alexander - Radio 2 Breakfast show presenter and sports journalist, shares the highs and lows of falling in love with running - from the first stumbling (and sweaty) steps on the running machine - through to the finely honed marathon runner he is today. Funny, inspiring, honest - the perfect read for anyone with a pair of well-worn trainers by the door (or thinking of buying a pair)
Vassos Alexander shares the highs and lows of falling in love with running, charting his journey from 20-a-day smoker to 20k-a-day runner. This isn't a 'how to' book - it's a celebration of running - and what lots of us think about when we run - part therapy, part escape, part self-discovery, part weight loss, part midlife crisis, part simple child-like joy of running when you could be walking.
Separated into 26.2 chapters, each featuring people who love running - including Jenson Button, Helen Skelton, Nicky Campbell, Haile Gebrselassie and Paula Radcliffe.
