She is great at promoting that running is really accessible to anyone who is able bodied to take up, the problems with how exercise is advertised and yet how important it is and the need to get help for mental health.

Within a month, I was running through central London on my own, and I hadn’t been there on my own for years. I’ve battled with my mental health since my teenage years and I too found running to pull me out of some of my darkest days, giving me purpose and clarity I could only of dreamt of having before I’d tried.Although with this came a lot of repetition and circular narrative and I found myself feeling déjà vu a number of times as she came back around to the same discussion point; it didn’t really follow a linear path.

Mackie knows what she’s talking about from a non-medical point of view and openly admits everyone is different so I’m going to find out more for my own mental health. If you're curious about the benefits of running for mental wellbeing, I'd recommend giving this book a read. As someone who's been exercising for mental health the past few years I totally get it; however, for me there are too many facts and figures and not enough feels.I also love how the author promotes the opposite of the trendy health/ wellness lifestyle which has made so many feel excluded and unmotivated from running or exercising. Sometimes the most trivial things force you out of bed, not the most meaningful and important things in your life.

And indeed, though the author's experiences of anxiety differ from my own, there was so much that I found myself agreeing with (and thinking 'thank goodness someone else knows how it feels! 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.A heartfelt and joyous ode to the strange, wonderful pull of a pair of ugly trainers, tight fitting Polyester, the rainy, windy open road and the peace and clarity it brings.

It is just about a woman who just loves running, she loves it a lot, and she appreciates all the benefits it's brought to her life.I read this book during an anxious period and skimmed these sections as they heightened my own anxiety. If, like me, you're a runner (ew, but Bella made me feel okay about saying this), or struggle with your mental health in some way, I'd really recommend this book. I listened to the audiobook of this, which is narrated by the author, and really enjoyed this format.
