Karen Guttridge was smug. At the age of 56, she was sitting in her doctor’s office after a morning of Well Woman checks. She’d been fending off the worst of the menopause for years and now calmly awaited his verdict on her invincible body.<br />‘You have osteopenia,’ he said.<br /><br />Despite the fact she’d never actually heard of it, she vowed to beat this, to take it on.<br />He looked up. ‘Do you like to hike? Or jog?’<br />Karen decided she was going to be a runner. Just like that. It wasn’t the monumental decision most folks face. You see, she’d always liked exercise. Not adrenalin-fuelled leaping off cliffs stuff but walking, tennis, netball, that sort of thing. So a bit of running - how hard could it be? <br /><br />Forgetting that a particularly travel packed year lay ahead, Karen launched her plan. Join her as she dodges snakes, ants, caterpillars and naked man orchids whilst suffering a dog bite, swallowing insects and running away from glaciers. <br />Finally managing to drag herself through a handful of 5K races, Karen was definitely beginning to get the hang of this and might have even completed a 10K too if it hadn’t been for Elsa from Frozen.<br /><br />Running Like a Wrinkly follows Karen’s often hilarious determination to keep on running whilst battling menopausal sleep deprivation, dehydration, fatigue and anxiety. From migrating eyebrows, dodgy eyesight, unruly body parts and an unsuspecting foray into the world of sex toys, this is a light hearted yet informative look at running as we age. You’re never too old or too slow.<br />

Grace and Seabreeze Equestrian Center. They’ve been an institution in Central Florida for decades. But now it’s the end of the line. The community around Seabreeze has been torn up by resort development, and Grace is ready to retire gracefully to the ever-receding countryside, with a smaller barn and smaller ambitions to match.<br /><br />Or not.<br /><br />A shot at making a few extra bucks by renting stalls to a trainer specializing in parade horses becomes a new obsession for Grace’s assistant trainer, Kennedy -- and a shot in the arm for Grace, who finds herself charmed by the local theme park’s equine manager, Mark. Not ready to cede the area’s equestrian experiences to the theme parks, she begins to think she can beat them at their own game. Which, unfortunately, won’t be easy to explain to Mark.<br /><br />Trying to balance a barn full of boarders, aggressive new neighbors, a troublesome staff and a relationship with a man whose business model is in her crosshairs isn’t easy. Grace has been in the horse business a long time... but it's never looked like this before.

<p>The book sets forth theories about motor learning and control that provide lessons for learning any sport or physical activity. For example, a central idea in the book is that through years of practice, a physical activity becomes effortless both mentally and physically, as if the body executes complex and difficult movements without conscious control from the mind.</p>

Witty, observant, and full of cringe-worthy confessions and heartwarming encouragement, Confessions celebrates both running and life. Part Bridget Jones, part Forrest Gump, Dana Ayers chronicles her awkward mishaps and adventures in transitioning from childhood bookworm to accidental accomplished athlete. Over the last ten years, Ayers has completed a vast array of races. She runs them all while admittedly not getting much faster, much thinner, or much more disciplined—though she has managed to be on national television, split open her pants, and get electrocuted. Ayers intersperses her hilarious yet relatable struggles with insights about how and why she keeps running. A self-proclaimed ambassador of slow runners, Ayers has completed dozens of endurance challenges, including Tough Mudder, the Ragnar Relay, Muddy Buddy, Warrior Dash, Run Amuck, the Army Ten-Miler, the Country Music Marathon, and many more mud runs, obstacles courses, and races. Her race descriptions will entertain seasoned runners and non-runners alike. Woven into the chaos of her running adventures is compassionate reassurance for anyone who feels like they aren’t fast enough, athletic enough, or strong enough to finish a tough race. Though told with humor, Confessions’ stories share an underlying theme of Ayers’ serious reverence for the sport of running and the running community. Ayers describes experiences such as participating in a 1,000-mile relay for Boston Marathon bombing victims, and being overcome by emotion while observing wounded veterans struggling to finish a race. Her stories prove how life-enriching it can be to physically fight for something and to cheer on others who are doing the same. For anyone who has considered trying a marathon, an obstacle race, or simply taking up running for the first time, Ayers is your ambassador. If she can do it, you can too.
