Jog On by Bella Mackie

I’ve been wanting to read this for a while and I’m glad I finally got round to it. Bella tells the story of how she discovered running after a painful divorce and found it really helped with her anxiety and other mental health struggles. This is an unflinchingly honest look at how difficult and far-reaching mental health issues can be, and how there’s no one solution fits all. But for Bella, and for others that she talks to throughout the book, it was running that did it. This is a great, and important read. I felt it was a little bit repetitious in places, but I think it will be unfailingly useful for others going through the same thing. Just to know you’re not alone is the first step on a difficult journey and Bella’s done a brilliant job here of reaching out a hand.
