I’ve written a book based on this blog, about my experience of running and cancer. It was published in January 2017 by Pitch Publishing and you can download the first couple of chapters from their website, or order it on Amazon, Waterstones or from other online bookshops. You can find links to my original blog posts on my ‘about’ page.
The i news has published an extract from the book and there’s an article about me in the Daily Mirror. I’ve written about my experience for Huffington Post and the Running Physio and Ealing Half Marathon have done a great press release about it. The book is being reviewed by a few people and there are more articles about it to come, so I’ll keep this updated.
I’m hoping it will be helpful to women facing a breast cancer diagnosis, to their friends and family who want to know how to support them, indeed to anyone struck by the cancer thunderbolt. But I also think it will be of interest to everyone who runs. It explores how I got into running, how running became part of my identity, why I’ve run in Palestine, how running builds resilience and makes you stronger in so many ways.
