Best running books: Inspiration guaranteedMimi Anderson is an inspirational ultra runner , not just for her running abilities, but for pushing the boundaries of what women can achieve, starting her career at a time when ultra running was an almost exclusively male preserve. Mimi describes her struggle with anorexia with great honesty and explains how running has allowed her to finally control her eating disorder. I also identified strongly with her thoughts on balancing being a mother with her own running ambitions. We mothers are often made to feel guilty about taking time for ourselves but once I put my trainers on and go for a run, I have so much more energy when I get back and I am less grumpy — which pleases my whole family… Mothers and indeed all women should never be made to feel guilty about exercising, as it can do wonders for our health and self-esteem and sets a good example to children that being active is a normal, everyday activity. Something of a specialist in extreme conditions, the book details her wins in races from deserts and jungles to the Arctic.
