Moving accounts of hope and resilience from inspiring everyday runners
Yorkshire-based author Rachel Ann Cullen shares inspiring stories of everyday runners. This book is the follow-up to her memoir, Running For My Life, an intimate account of her physical and mental health struggled with depression, bipolar disorder and body dysmorphia, and how running was pivotal in her recovery. Each day, millions of people around the world put on their trainers in an effort to deal with their personal demons and challenges—and a growing and often virtual community is there running alongside them. Since hearing from readers, Rachel has wanted to tell their stories, too. These are moving accounts of hope and resilience.
Rachel Ann Cullen spends as much time running in the Yorkshire hills as she does writing. She received an honorary degree from the University of Hull for “significant personal achievement and contribution to the discussion around mental health.” Her books include A Midlife Cyclist, which discussed how mental health struggled arose when injuries prevented her from drumming. She is passionate about promoting physical and mental wellbeing, and has partnered with Saucony to support their Run for Good Health campaign. Previous books include Running for My Life and A Midlife Cyclist.
