For readers who enjoyed Alexandra Heminsley's Running like a Girl and Bryony Gordon's Mad Girl, Running For My Life is a funny, heartfelt and inspirational story of one woman's marathon journey through mental illness. Suffering from depression but desperate for 'normality', Rachel Cullen found herself in failing relationships, the wrong career and a reliance on alcohol and chocolate to get her through each day. Stuck in an endless cycle of mental misery, she put on a pair of old trainers. She'd never been able to think of herself as a 'runner' before, and the first time she forced herself out the door, she knew it would hurt. Everywhere. She just didn't realise how much it would heal her, too.

Warrick Dunn was only eighteen when his mother, a Baton Rouge police officer, was shot and killed. Yet somehow he managed to enroll at Florida State University and help his team to a national championship during his freshman year—while also caring for his five brothers and sisters. Despite his modest size, Dunn went on to a storied NFL career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons, becoming one of only twenty-three running backs in NFL history to exceed the 10,000-yard career rushing mark. Off the field, he created the Warrick Dunn Foundation and its Homes for the Holidays program, helping single parents achieve first-time home ownership. But in his drive to help others, the one person Dunn neglected was himself, as the pain of his mother's loss led to a spiraling depression that went untreated for years. Running for My Life details Dunn's struggle to confront his past and face the grief that consumed him for far too long. Thought-provoking and uplifting, it is the story of an exceptional athlete's secret torment and inspiring courage.

From the time he was a small child Serge Gasore has been a runner. Some days he was running to play, some days he was running to school, some days he was running for a prize, but some days he was running for his life. In My Day to Die: Running for My Life, Gasore details the story of his life beginning with his early childhood when his mother was murdered when Gasore was only four years old. His story continues through his later childhood as Gasore struggled for survival during the Rwandan genocide, which occurred when he was eight years old. His story describes some of the horrors he faced, including watching his grandmother die during an ambush grenade attack by the Hutu army on the church where they, and other Tutsis, were hiding. Gasore tells of neighbors and friends turning against him for the mere fact he was a Tutsi and they were Hutu. He tells of weeks of running from the enemy, hiding among the bamboo bushes. His story continues as Gasore details his time in the army as a child, not even 10 years old yet, and his adjustment to life in a new world after the war. As he grew up and moved into high school, Gasore channeled his love for running into a tool for advancing his future. His love of running became a career opportunity and brought him to the United States. Gasore continues his story as he attended Abilene Christian University in Abilene, Texas, on a track scholarship. It was there, in the slow pace of a dusty, West Texas town, that Gasore came to know a loving God and headed down a path of forgiving those who had caused him so much pain and harm.

"In a way, I felt as though I was running for my life and the track was my escape. Looking back, I would not have made it this far without some sort of outlet. That "stupid journal" I kept locked away is what kept me alive." Running for My Life is a story about how a young girl who once hated her life used sports to turn her life into one she now loves. Her secret formula was faith, determination, and hard work. Her story is living proof that your end can be much better than your beginning but first you have to believe.

However, few people master the techniques required to use those same situations to push them forward. Alexis did and this book is her diary, but also your guide to how you can do the same. Like this beautiful young girl, your trial can become your testimony.

Michelle Orange uses the lens of pop culture to decode the defining characteristics of our media-drenched times In This Is Running for Your Life, Michelle Orange takes us from Beirut to Hawaii to her grandmother's retirement home in Canada in her quest to understand how people behave in a world increasingly mediated—for better and for worse—by images and interactivity. Orange's essays range from the critical to the journalistic to the deeply personal; she seamlessly combines stories from her own life with incisive analysis as she explores everything from the intimacies we develop with celebrities and movie characters to the troubled creation of the most recent edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. With the insight of a young Joan Didion and the empathy of a John Jeremiah Sullivan, Orange dives into popular culture and the status quo and emerges with a persuasive and provocative book about how we live now. Her singular voice will resonate for years to come.

My heart was twice broken, and although I can hardly breathe for sorrow, I have to believe that I found my daughters journals for a purpose! Running from the Heart is a collection of devotions from a very British girl who absolutely loved Jesus. During her last eight years, when Rebeccas life had been turned upside down, she wrote tenderly of her sorrow and joy in the unexplained ways of God. Described by some as a modern-day saint, her legacy to us is a remarkable life well lived that will inspire and encourage you on your spiritual journey. Rebecca is a role model of the type of woman I want to be. I became more inspired by her as I witnessed her unmatched faith. She helped me see what a young woman living for the Lord looks like and made me want to be like her. Rebeccas example lives on, inspiring me and everyone who had the gift of knowing her. Rebecca was one of the two most holy women I had ever met! When I heard the news of her being called home, in some ways, I wasnt surprised!

THE POWER OF RUNNING. Every runner knows this, and marvels at it, and finds it hard to wholly describe: Running will change your life. These four dozen essays capture the power of running to change and shape our existence, to elevate us, to inspire and strengthen us in all our pursuits. They were selected for the fine quality of their writing, the emotional strength of the stories, and for their narrative drama. Collectively they are motivational, inspirational, and instructive, thus making a fascinating book for dewy beginners and grizzled veterans alike. In this book are personal tales of running to quit drinking or drugs, to escape a bad marriage, to lose weight, running out grief, developing self-esteem, running for the sheer joy of it. A daughter finally bonds with her distant father when she wins a local race. A man diagnosed with a tumor in his lung runs his way back to health. A teenage girl living in a crack-infested neighborhood of the Bronx takes up running and finds her strength, and a good side of life. One man, viciously attacked on a remote beach in Africa and bleeding profusely, runs miles to safety, saving his own life. One woman’s story tells us, "Everything I need to know I learned from cross-country running." A Pakistani man, as an orphaned child, was introduced to running by a kind teacher—and went on to become a national caliber marathoner. They are all here—every type of runner, and running in all its physical and spiritual glory. This is a book to inspire anyone to go run, and love every miserable, glorious second of it. Garth Battista is the editor of The Runner’s Literary Companion.
