Running My Way

$ 21.95

The inspirational, bittersweet story of Tamsin Imber's journey as a runner. Starting out as a busy mom, she secretly trains for a marathon—and ends up completing nine in a year, running joyfully in the rainy North York Moors with a group of like-minded lunatics. But talented Tamsin's London Marathon attempt is thwarted by a mysterious fatigue. Running My Way explores the empowering sense of freedom and achievement that running can bring into the chaotic, stressful life of a typically selfless mom. Mocked by an old friend, Tamsin sets off on a bumpy road that leads to a rewarding new social life and countless hilarious adventures. Trophy-winning runs attract the attention of a coach who helps her toward qualification for a championship place in the London Marathon. Ultimately, an appreciation of running free with wild abandon—whether in glorious countryside or in competition—is sharpened by Tamsin's diagnosis with debilitating CFS/ME. Now her positivity and sense of humor are sure to inspire others to take up the sport.

Tamsin Imber is passionate about the outdoors and the countryside. She finds inspiration for her writing from the joy, challenge, and determination of the ever-present human spirit that physical endeavor brings. Tamsin has a PhD in Geology.
