From the co-author of the best-selling beginners' running book, Running Made Easy, with a foreword by internationally renowned running legend Kathrine Switzer. Lisa Jackson is a surprising cheerleader for the joys of running: truth be told, she's not just a little bit slow, but often 'last person across the finish line' slow. But that hasn't stopped former fitness-phobe Lisa from becoming a marathon runner at 31 even if she's come last in 17 of 85 marathons. This is Lisa's story, but it's also the story of the extraordinary people she has met along the way tutu-clad fun-runners, world record breakers, 250-mile ultrarunners, octogenarians and blind runners whose tales of love, loss and laughter are sure to inspire you. Your Pace or Mine? is for all runners, from nervous novices right up to seasoned marathoners. Lisa's message is that running really isn't about the time you do, but the time you have! AUTHOR: Lisa Jackson is the co-author of the best-selling beginner's running book, Running Made Easy and author of Adore Yourself Slim. A Contributing Editor to Women's Running, Lisa has also written for Men's Running, Zest, and Triathlete's World. Lisa lives in south London, with her husband Graham, who has run 27 marathons and two ultramarathons almost entirely against his will. SELLING POINTS: Lisa's first book, 'Running Made Easy', has sold over 100,000 copies and has remained Amazon's number 1 in beginner's running books for over a decade. It was 13th in Amazon's list of the world's best-selling sports books (The Economist; May 2005).
