Overview
-

A guide to running for the unathletic, told by a man who fell into the sport almost by accident. Progressing cautiously on a reluctant and unexpected journey to 100 Marathons (and beyond), he learned the hard way from years of getting it wrong. Unlikely to break any records or become a national figure for the standards he sets, he nonetheless has enhanced his life and fitness, taking his long-suffering family along with him. In this witty account, he writes about his unsteady progress while knocking the stuffing out of running pomposity. Atkinson is a husband, father, and engineer. After a lifetime of inactivity and ballooning weight, he decided at thirty-two to improve his health for the sake of his kids and tried running. He is now a member of the 100 Marathon Club and can typically be found running around his home town of Milton Keynes or searching the internet for his next race.
