INTRIGUING, ABSORBING, UNASHAMED.” – An avid cyclist and runner

COMPELLING, ENTERTAINING, HEART-WARMING.” – A non-runner

INSPIRATIONAL, MOTIVATIONAL AND CAPTIVATING” – Ultra Marathoner 


Just Finish is the must-read for all wannabe runners who need a reminder of what you are capable of. Running as a commonplace of exercise needs no introduction past truism, but this story is one to take with you in your stride, whether you are on the cusp of your own running journey or want to revel in a true journey of challenge, determination and courage, to reach your goal.


My book is a true story that follows my journey from sitting on a lumpy futon, overweight, out of shape and picking Pringle shards out of my navel, to me running a 50K ultra-marathon. It’s not a new story it’s just told from the perspective of a “grassroots runner” who just wanted to finish the races I entered.

It’s about my struggles, my achievements, the barriers, the pain, the people I met and how I pushed myself to the brink while trying to achieve things I never thought possible.

My story is not a fat-to-fit story, it’s a fat-to-fat story; I found out too late in my journey that running miles and miles without considering other factors was not necessarily the best way to lose weight, but the benefits of my running journey transcended what the scales told me every Monday morning.

My story may not appeal to the elite runner, as there will be no mention of 6- to 8-minute miles, finishing in the top ten, or any Olympic qualifications. My story is more for the wannabe runner, the runner who is just starting out and the runner who feels more comfortable running 14- to 18-minute miles; the runner who will check the time of the previous year’s race results to see what the slowest time was before they enter; the runner who has to phone the race organiser to see if there is a cut off time in the longer races; or the runner who will walk just out of view of the people at the finish, then turn on the jets for the last 100-metre sprint finish. All things I have done during my running journey (and still do).

Back of book blurb:

As Canadian living in West Yorkshire in the UK, 18+ stone in weight, not built for running, and living a sedentary lifestyle, my running journey started, like many, with a health scare. Thinking running could be the panacea that cured all ills, I downloaded an app and reluctantly ventured into the unknown world of running one step at a time. I experienced tears of joy, groans of agony, and attempted to gulp back my tears as I achieved an 11-year dream, met a running angel, made some incredible friends, challenged myself to do what I thought was impossible,and pushed myself to the brink.

I also had to fight the powerful forces of procrastination and indecision about crossing the threshold of my front door at the start of every running opportunity. However,with every race that I sheepishly entered, with all my ‘running with others’insecurities, and with every solitary mile I put in, I soon realised I was not only running away from my unhealthy old self, I was running towards a positive and more confident new me.

My story is not a fat-to-fit story, it’s a fat-to-fat story; I found out too late in my journey that running miles and miles without considering other factors was not necessarily the best way to lose weight, but the benefits of my running journey transcended what the scales told me every Monday morning.

Ultimately,this story is for wannabe runners and beginner runners who are putting in those lonely miles, runners who feel comfortable running 14-to 18-minute miles, and runners who check the slowest times of the previous year’s race results before they enter an event.

If you are on the cusp of beginning your own running journey, I honestly hope this book will help you find, deep within yourself, what is needed to cross the line and JUST FINISH!
