“Whether you’ve never run before or are just a beginner this is a great primer.”


More Info

Here’s what Liz Yelling (Double Olympian and Commonwealth Bronze Medalist) said about it:

“If you are new to running this is a basic beginners guide to getting started. It will cover all your questions about where to start and how to start. The author Annie has written this from her heart, enlightening others from her own experiences as a beginner. Now a regular runner and coach she now hopes to help others embarking on their own running campaign.”

The author Annie Page is a qualified UK Athletics Running Coach, an NLP Trainer and Master Practitioner and a Coaching Master – who really enjoys running!

She says “I had not run since leaving school, where I was probably one of the few who actually enjoyed cross country. I started running again in 2004, with a friend and we started off not being able to run for more than a couple of minutes and then needing to walk, which was great because the plan we were following told us to do just that (there is one at the end of the book).

From there I fell back in love with running, with racing and getting out in the fresh air and enjoying the countryside. I joined my local club Ampthill and Flitwick Flyers and have enjoyed the camaraderie that goes with belonging to a fun, friendly, supportive and social club.

I wanted to give something back to the club and so became a coach and have attended various UK Athletics run courses over the years to keep my knowledge up to date.”
