Bryony Gordon was not a runner. A loafer, a dawdler, a drinker, a smoker, yes. A runner, no.

But, as she recovered from the emotional rollercoaster of opening up her life in her mental health memoir Mad Girl, she realised that there were things that might actually help her: getting outside, moving her body and talking to others who found life occasionally challenging. As she ran, she started to shake off the limitations that had always held her back and she saw she had actually imposed them on herself. Why couldn't she be a runner?

In April 2017, Bryony Gordon ran all 26.2 miles of the London Marathon. In Eat, Drink, Run, we join her as she trains for this daunting task and rises to the challenge one step at the time. Of course, on top of the aching muscles and blistered feet, there's also the small matter of getting a certain royal to open up about his mental health. Through it all, Bryony shows us that extraordinary things can happen to everyone, no matter what life throws our way.

MEDIA REVIEWS

A courageous account that will inspire us all - bloody brilliant. - Fearne Cotton

An honest and damn funny book about daring to dream, about chafing and Vaseline, and running through the pain. I raced through it without getting a stitch. - Matt Haig

“Not just for runners”

Part memoir, part inspirational (and very readable) self-help guide, this is much more than a book about learning to run. Like her previous books, there's a real engagement with the obstacles mental health... More

“Tackles serious issues while staying light & entertaining ”

I read Mad Girl, Bryony Gordon's previous book, in the autumn. To say I enjoyed it is not quite the right sentiment; it's mostly not a happy book, as it documents Bryony's life living with OCD and the... More

Although a bit sweary to start with, I really enjoyed ‘Eat, Drink, Run’.
