This book is the story of Parul Sheth who started running and used it as a
way to getting her life back on track. It is the story of a broken woman who,
thanks to running, was able to cope with her trauma and evolve into a strong
Parul?s story, will resonate with a lot of us. We all have our own
personal hell from which we are trying to escape. It is for the sari clad lady
who dreams to run in track pants on Marine Drive, for the alcoholic who is
trying to quit and adopt a healthier lifestyle. For the woman who is trapped
in her roles, but wants to break free and find herself, as well the workaholic
executive who thinks he cannot follow his passion due to lack of time.
The road is perilous but with sheer tenacity we can learn to enjoy the journey.
Each hill we climb is making us stronger, taking us higher.
With this story I hope to inspire the non runner to start running, the half
marathoner to dream bigger and realise that even the impossible is possible, and
the marathoner to push his own perceived limits and aim for the much desired
This is a simple story showing us how a seemingly ordinary woman achieves her dreams. Great examples illustrate the various principles. It teaches you how to go after your gaols and the importance of having a plan. The length is just right for a single seating read. Awesome book!
This book is as much about life as it is about running. It shows you how the author used running to get her life back on track. You can either look at an obstacle and be overwhelmed by it, or you can take it up as a challenge and overcome it. The important part is - you can choose. Both in running and in life, your attitude plays a critical role.
I can't claim to be a runner myself, and I read the book more out of curiosity... and guess what... as soon as I finished the book .. I've started ...
I love the way the parallels have been drawn between running and life- a lot to learn from this motivating book. This is not a only a running book- many valid life lessons here. Great graphics- and the writing style is conversational....a page turner! A must buy for all!
