"In her twenties, Alexandra Heminsley spent more time drinking white wine than she did in pursuit of athletic excellence. When she decided to take up running in her thirties, she had high hopes for a blissful runner's high and immediate physical transformation. After eating three slices of toast with honey and spending ninety minutes on iTunes creating the perfect playlist, she hit the streets--and failed miserably. The stories of her first runs turn the common notion that we are all "born to run" on its head--and exposes the truth about starting to run: it can be brutal. Running Like a Girl tells the story of getting beyond the brutal part, how Alexandra makes running a part of her life, and reaps the rewards: not just the obvious things, like weight loss, health, and glowing skin, but self-confidence and immeasurable daily pleasure, along with a new closeness to her father--a marathon runner--and her brother, with whom she ultimately runs her first marathon"--… (lisätietoja)

Enjoyable memoir about becoming a runner. I actually liked the first half of the book, chronicling Heminsley's disastrous first job and journey to running a marathon. She's honest and funny, not glossing over the tough parts of running. However, the tips in the second half of the book fell flat for me. She is way too preachy about running for charity and spends a large section talking about that, versus only a few paragraphs on choosing shoes. Plus she actually spends time talk about choosing nail polish and eyeliner. She lost me at that point. ( )

If you're *not* a runner and could use a memoir to help the idea marinate in your mind, this is a great book. Heminsley goes through the highs and the lows, making it the idea seem possible. I really wanted to get out and move: I got some clothes, new sneakers, made the pump-me-up playlist, I felt ready! Then I got a flu that left me barely able to stand, then the snow fell and my sneakers wouldn't help me. Due to the book realistically discussing the process, I still want to go out. How often can you say that things happen and you still want to proceed?

While there were some great tips on running, the organization is terrible and the tips are not all encompassing. If you want to whet your appetite, this is a great memoir of an average female runner. If you need and instruction manual and reference, this is is not it; I went running to the bookstore to get a running guide. That said, I am still happy that I bought this book; jury is just out on whether it is a read-and-pass-on versus a keeper.

EDIT: I ended up keeping it, if you are interested. ( )

I enjoyed this immensely. Funny, honest, and super relatable.

EXCEPT who in their right mind just up and runs a 5k right off the bat?! I'm doing a couch-to-5k program right now and I'm proud of myself for running 5 MINUTES at a time!

...Anyway. I may never be a marathon runner, but this book did actually make me feel like I could do it if I wanted to. ( )

4.5* A really fun memoir / list of "things I wish I'd known" about what it takes to become a marathon runner with lady parts. Lots of laughable moments, and one or two that made me cry. ( )
