Bryony Gordon was not a runner. A dawdler, a drinker, a smoker, yes. A runner, no. Recovering from the rollercoaster of laying her life bare in her bestselling mental health memoir, Mad Girl, she realised that getting outside, and moving her body, might just help banish her sadness. Less than a year after starting training, she ran the London Marathon. 

In her typically funny and inspiring new memoir Bryony talks about making the transition from loafer to runner and shows how extraordinary things can happen if we’re willing to keep going. Bryony Gordon has written for the Telegraph for 18 years.


A courageous account that will inspire us all - bloody brilliant
— Fearne Cotton
An honest and damn funny book about daring to dream, about chafing and Vaseline, and running through the pain. I raced through it without getting a stitch
