I wanted to read a book about running so I could get motivated. This book helped me to enjoy running again, even it I occassionally I lose motivation

I am also a "non-traditional" shaped runner, and this book is an honest, funny description of what it is like to not look like the magazine photos. But also to love running so much that it just doesn't matter. I really enjoyed reading the story written by another ( dare I say) fat runner!
