Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year: A Practical, Personal, Inspirational Guide for Women Athletes

No matter how hard it is to get out the door, it’s on the road that we meet our strengths and weaknesses, have the space to contemplate our hopes and dreams and ultimately find what makes us happy. Not every workout is an epiphany. Instead, each time out on the road—no matter how much of a battle it was to get there—is an exercise in getting to know ourselves a little bit better. It’s on that road that we learn our strengths and weaknesses, ponder our hopes and dreams, and ultimately discover what makes us happy.

For women who draw even a portion of their strength from being active, Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year serves as a Book of Days. It’s practical, inspirational, and personal, with a dash of the existential and neurotic, it’s a fresh take on the popular thought-a-day books, geared toward women athletes. Containing 365 entries for a full year of running inspiration, Run like a Girl 365 Days a Year revels in the joys we discover as we greet our athletic selves each new day, and confront the obstacles thrown in our way by the world, by our bodies and, most importantly, by our minds. Some of the topics include balance, body image, the battle of the sexes, sisterhood, and aging.

Light-hearted, honest, and authentic, Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year is an inspiring daily reminder of every woman’s strength and potential.

Diary of an Adorable Fat Girl: “The funniest book of the year.”

NOW ONLY 99p!!

BOOK ONE: Mary Brown is funny, gorgeous and bonkers. She’s also about six stone overweight. When she realises she can’t cross her legs, has trouble bending over to tie her shoelaces without wheezing like an elderly chain-smoker, and discovers that even her hands and feet look fat, it’s time to take action. But what action? She’s tried every diet under the sun.
This series is the hysterical story of what happens when Mary joins ‘Fat Club’ where she meets a cast of funny characters and one particular man who catches her eye. As the series develops, Mary goes off on a whole load of adventures. Join her for all of them. See: www.bernicebloom.com for more details.
The stories are laugh-out-loud funny and will resonate with anyone who has dieted, tried to keep up with any sort of exercise programme or spent 10 minutes in a changing room trying to extricate herself from a way too-small garment that she ambitiously tried on and is now completely stuck in.

This is the first mini book. The second installment is here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Adventures-Adorable-Fat-Girl-gorgeous-ebook/dp/B01BMPGUAU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1516046500&sr=8-4&keywords=bernice+bloom

Featured Recipe: Mushroom Stroganoff

Cookie Dough Ice Pops

Stroganoff originated in Russia as a beef dish served in a rich sour cream sauce. And though there are many versions of the original recipe, I prefer this plant-based one, made with rich porcini mushrooms and lots of fresh herbs.

Serves 4

2 large shallots, peeled and minced 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced 2 teaspoons minced thyme Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 teaspoon minced rosemary 1 pound portobello mushrooms, stemmed and cut into large pieces 1 ounce porcini mushrooms, soaked for 30 minutes in 1 cup of hot water that has just been boiled ½ cup dry white wine 1 pound whole-grain fettuccine, cooked according to package directions, drained, and kept warm 1 cup Tofu Sour Cream (recipe follows) Chopped parsley

Place the shallots in a large skillet and sauté over a medium heat for 8 minutes. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time to keep them from sticking. Add the garlic and thyme, and cook for another minute. Stir in the salt and pepper, rosemary, and the portobello mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the porcini mushrooms, and their soaking liquid, and the wine. Stir, and cook over medium-low heat for 20 minutes.

When the stroganoff is finished cooking, stir in the sour cream. Add the cooked noodles and toss well. Serve garnished with the parsley.

Tofu Sour Cream

Use this healthy dairy alternative in any dish that calls for sour cream. Serve it with baked potatoes and fresh chives, with tacos or enchiladas, or with Mushroom Stroganoff.

Makes 1½ cups

1 package extra firm lite silken tofu, drained 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar Salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy. Chill until ready to serve.

  • “I have tried many gloves and these are far and away the best. This is actually the second pair I ordered because I had to get them as a gift they’re so good. Great material and the wrist support is incredible. I have bad wrists and this has been a hug concern with gloves in the past – but not with these! When I called about a concern I had, the customer service was simply excellent. I cannot recommend these gloves enough and am sure I will wear them and remain a customer for many years to come.” – Zachary Nevolo
