The Non-Runner's Marathon Guide for Women--A Book Review!!!!

Confession: I lost my camera. So no fun book review pics this time. It's too bad too because I really loved this next book. It would have been fun to have a little photo shoot with this one. It's called "The Non-Runner's Marathon Guide for Women: Get off your butt and on with your training" by Dawn Dais.
The author is hilarious and really made the book interesting and entertaining. The book included actual pages from her journal while she trained for her first marathon. It's kinda like a "how-to" to jumpstart your own running, while sitting and talking to your funny best friend about all the horrible parts of running. The author also includes different running plans to get you going for a half marathon, or full.
Reading this book actually made me feel not so bad about my slowness, or that it's a bad thing to take walking breaks sometimes when out for a run. There were great running tips in the book too as well as pages to write your own thoughts and training.
I would totally recommend this book to any female runner. Beginner to hardcore- it will make you laugh.

The title alone makes me laugh, I'm sure this would be a fun read! I'll be on the lookout for a copy!
