Book of the Week: This Mum Runs
Meet Jo Pavey, Olympic runner and busy Mum, who's heading to her fifth Olympic Games next month at Rio 2016.
"Come-back races? I've had more than a few, the night of 10 May 2014 was the ultimate long shot. I was a forty-year-old mother of two who had given birth eight months before. I trained on a treadmill in a cupboard by the back door and I was wearing a running vest older than most of the girls I was competing against. Was I crazy?"
Dubbed as 'Supermum', this heartwarming memoir 'This Mum Runs' follows Jo as she continuously juggles being a busy Mum whilst training for events such as the Commonwealth Games and Olympics, which tend to consist of hours on her treadmill in a cosy cupboard, whilst her youngest naps!
