Your Pace or Mine?

What Running Taught Me About Life, Laughter and Coming Last

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 and, more astonishingly, an ultrarunner at 41 - even if she's come last in 17 of 85 marathons and plodded through two 56-mile ultramarathons. 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. It's for anyone who longs to feel the wonderful sense of connection and achievement running has to offer. Lisa's message is that running really isn't about the time you do, but the time you have!
