Lisa Jackson is a surprising cheerleader for the joys of running. Formerly a committed fitness-phobe, she became a marathon runner at 31, and ran her first 56-mile ultramarathon aged 41. And unlike many runners, Lisa's not afraid to finish last - in fact, she's now done so in 25 of the 100-plus marathons she's completed so far.
But Your Pace or Mine? isn't just Lisa's story, it's also that of the extraordinary people she’s met along the way - tutu-clad fun-runners, octogenarians and 250-mile ultrarunners - whose tales of loss and laughter are sure to inspire you just as much as they've inspired her.
This book is for anyone who longs to experience the sense of connection and achievement that running has to offer, whether you're a nervous novice or a seasoned marathoner dreaming of doing an ultra. An account of the triumph of tenacity over a lack of talent, Your Pace or Mine? is proof that running really isn't about the time you do, but the time you have!
