My Best Worst Year

I thought I would be on the up and running half marathons in a flash. Contrary to this, I struggled. I was fiendishly slow, and felt that I could not get enough oxygen into my lungs, no matter how hard I tried.

‘Alison, I’ve got bad news.’ The voice of the pathologist at the other end of the telephone confirmed for Alison Tucker the news no woman ever wants to hear: she had breast cancer. Once the shock had settled, Alison decided that she would take charge. Not only would she take ownership of the dreaded disease, but she would do so with a positive mindset and prepare herself as best she could for what was to come. She did detailed research and paid close heed to what she was told by others who had walked the path before her. As she navigated her way through surgery and the chemotherapy and radiotherapy that followed, Alison’s determination paid off. Not only did she make new friends, but she learnt valuable life lessons too: acceptance of the illness for what it was, the amazing impact of ongoing advances in medical science, and the importance of being able to ask for – and receive – help. In My Best Worst Year – A Breast Cancer Story Alison gives us an authentic account of her experience, offering insights and advice for others who might one day face the same diagnosis. You will accompany her on her highs, empathise with her lows, and be amused by humorous anecdotes along the way. Through the generous support of family and friends, she has amassed a collection of practical tips for both patients and supporters which she shares with open-hearted honesty. What to take to chemotherapy sessions. What to look for when choosing a wig. What side effects a person can expect when having the various types of cancer treatment. What to say, and what not to say, to a cancer patient. How to remove stress from a cancer patient’s life. What kind of gifts and gestures are most appreciated. Contrary to Alison’s expectations, her year of treatment turned out to be her best worst year. By telling her story, she underlines the importance of a positive attitude and hopes to show that a person can still lead a productive and enjoyable life even after being diagnosed with cancer. ‘I learnt the power of gratitude, a learning that I will cherish forever and that I will draw on in no small measure in the good times and the bad.’

Marathon Man is a truly remarkable book that will inspire all who read it to know that they can take on the biggest challenges in their lives and overcome them. It all began when Rob's fiancee, exasperated as he sat slumped in front of the television watching the London marathon, bet him 20p that he'd never complete even one such race. Watching the 40,000 competitors as they raised over £53 million for charity, Rob decided to take things a little bit further. Despite never having run a marathon before, he set out to achieve an astonishing new record: he would run more than 365 marathons in a year. So it was that Marathon Man UK was born. This book not only tells the incredible story of Young's quest, during which he broke numerous world records, but also provides vital lessons in how to motivate yourself to achieve your goals and essential tips (learned the very hard way) in how to run and keep on going. He takes the reader on a vivid journey through some of the most beautiful scenery, as they join him in some of the toughest marathons and ultra-marathons in the UK. After suffering horrendous abuse as a child, Young has developed a determination that few can match. It enabled him to complete 370 marathons in the year and to win the Race Across USA (competing with a group of elite marathon-runners) by 30 hours. As Paula Radcliffe commented: 'This is amazing!' Marathon Man shows exactly why and how he achieved it.

Extreme race, city festival, global phenomenon - the New York Marathon is much more than a never-ending run. On top of the 50,000 plus participants who actually run the race, it’s an event that involves millions of people when you include the thousands of volunteers, the hundreds of thousands of supporters lining the streets of the metropolis par excellence, and the global TV audience watching at home. "The Never-Ending Run" aims to give a 360° explanation and tell the story of one of the most famous marathons in the world, starting with a mile-by-mile description of the race, including first-hand experiences.On the back of the story of the race, there follows a guide to New York specially dedicated to runners and all their shopping and tourism needs, along with scores of interesting facts and stats. "The Never-Ending Run" recounts the history of the New York City Marathon, provides intriguing insights and explains how to participate and properly prepare for the race- all without overlooking essential tips and suggestions for enjoying life, and your break, in the Big Apple. Part one, The Race, illustrates the history and route of the most famous race in the world, including race strategies by coach Fulvio Massini, as well as accounts from other famous athletes, such as Peter Ciaccia, Orlando Pizzolato, Franca Fiacconi, George Hirsch, German Silva, and Alex Zanardi. Part two, New York, is given over to the needs of the runner in town for the race: how to get around; where to go shopping for running gear; advice on what to do - and not do - in the days leading up to the race; and the best places to watch the race for spectators.

“I’d always been the kind of person who hated half steps; once I found a passion for something, I wanted to dive into the deep end of it.” Jeffrey has run over 150 marathons in six continents, completing more than 3,930 miles. This book tells the story of the one hundred races in his first eighteen years of marathoning: his training, injuries, triumphs, and failures. He admits that runners are a little bit crazy, submitting themselves to intense physical pain and constant self-doubt, but explains the rewards of satisfaction and joy at the end of a long race that are well worth the process. He also includes running tips on everything from strength training to race recovery for those who want to start or are already running. This memoir is not just for runners, but for anyone who appreciates any grueling experience that transforms the body and mind. It captures the sheer joy of physical exertion, the ups and downs of training, and the exhilaration of finishing a marathon so well, everyone will be inspired to lace up their running shoes.

Having spent 10 years scaling the lower echelons of the sport, the time has come for one of Britain's least successful athletes to reveal all about how he got involved in all this nonsense in the first place. Marvel as he reveals: His sporting history - how being last pick at school football in the 1970s set him on course for a lifetime of being rubbish at team games. How he took up triathlons in the first place (for a bet, and the cow who made it with him never paid up). How he overcame a crippling lack of talent and a chorus of complete indifference from his family to complete 10 Ironmans, all outside the top 500 finishers. The many triathlon adventures he has experienced over the past 10 years (cow pats, Ironmans, incontinence, driving bans, broken bones, public nudity, spending entire redundancy payments on a new bike, Belgian portaloos, German knocking shops, sunburnt arse cheeks, channel swimming, fights with chavs, obsessions with weather and the nutritional value of Jaffa Cakes, 3 hour marathons, chronic dehydration and so on). The many and varied idiots he's got to know as a result of taking up the sport (aka his mates). The typical training (hell) he goes through to take part in a race given he has absolutely no ability whatsoever. How triathlons ultimately caused him to sell his Mercedes, give away his expensive suit, chuck in his job in the City and become, as his father put it, a "god-damned hippy" (A cycle path designer who owns a camper van).
