Funny and honest, this is the story of how an ordinary, curvy woman ended up running five marathons.

Alexandra Heminsley had high hopes: the arse of an athlete, the waist of a supermodel, the speed of a gazelle. Defeated by gyms and bored of yoga, she decided to run.

Her first attempt did not end well.

Six years later, she has run five marathons in two continents.

But, as her dad says, you run with your head as much as with your legs. So, while this is a book about running, it's not just about running.

You could say it's about ambition (yes, getting out of bed on a rainy Sunday morning counts), relationships (including talking to the intimidating staff in the trainer shop), as well as your body (your boobs don't have to wobble when you run). But it's also about realising that you can do more than you ever thought possible.

Very funny, very honest and very emotional, whether you're in serious training or thinking about running for the bus, this is a book for anyone who after wine and crisps for supper a few too many times thinks they might . . . just might . . . like to run like a girl.

Jack Coughlin

Donald A. Davis

ÿ

In the aftermath of great floods, a doctor on a relief mission in northeastern Pakistan discovers the remains of a collapsed bridge that reminds him of a bridge near his childhood home in Ohio.ÿHe snaps a cellphone picture and sends it to his sister-just before his entire team is slaughtered.

ÿ

His sister is Beth Ledford, a Coast Guard sniper, who suspects that the answer to the mystery of her brother's deathÿis in that cellphone picture.ÿ No one believes her until she finds Kyle Swanson, once the top sniper in the Marine Corps and now the key member of a secret special operations team known as Task Force Trident. When Kyle takes Beth into Pakistan to investigate, they find the true secret behind the mass murder-what may be the last, best hope of victory by al-Qaeda and the Taliban over allied forces.

ÿ

Now theÿtwo snipers have their sights set on one man, an American diplomat who has become the biggest obstacle to victory in the war on terror.ÿ The only question is: which of them gets to pull the trigger?

AJ is one of the best runners in his school - which is one of the best athletics training grounds in the world. He's devastated when his parents suddenly move him to cold, wet London, and he finds himself facing a very alien life, and hostility from the school bully. When the bully's father, a washed-up drinker who used to be a runner, takes an interest in AJ's training, it might make all the difference to AJ - or it might just make things a lot worse.
