Description

The Sunday Times best seller.

Divorced and struggling with deep-rooted mental health problems, Bella Mackie ended her 20s in tears. She could barely find the strength to get off the sofa, let alone piece her life back together. Until one day she did something she had never done of her own free will - she pulled on a pair of trainers and went for a run.

Over the previous decade, Bella had been so paralysed by her fears that exercise was the very last thing on her mind. So that first run didn’t last very long. But to her surprise, she was back out there the next day. And the day after that. She began to set herself achievable goals - to run 5k in under 30 minutes, to walk to work every day for a week, to attempt 10 push-ups in a row. Before she knew it, her mood was lifting for the first time in years, and she had swapped hiding in her house for fresh air, unknown roads and running tracks.

In Jog On, Bella explains with hilarious and unfiltered honesty how she used running to battle crippling anxiety and depression, without having to sacrifice her main loves: booze, cigarettes and ice cream. With the help of a supporting cast of doctors, psychologists, sportspeople and friends, she shares a wealth of inspirational stories, research and tips that show how exercise often can be the best medicine. This funny, moving and motivational audiobook will encourage you to say ‘jog on’ to your problems and get your life back on track - no matter how small and scary those first steps may be.

I didn't even finish the book.

The publisher's summary and a few reviews mentioned that this book is hilarious. I'm on chapter 4, I haven't laughed once. If you're looking for a book to keep you motivated and interested to keep listening during your run, this is not the one.

Amazing

If you read any book this year, it has to be this! Honest, charming and hilarious at times.
