Running the Red Line is an informative and engaging book about running and competing, about the beauty of the fells, and above all about human emotion.
Julie Carter, Cumbria-based doctor and psychologist, is a veteran British and English fellrunning champion and a poetic writer.
Her stories are at times hilarious, at times tragic but always bravely honest. Here are powerful tales of meeting life's challenge with determination - told with a unique style and insight. The narrative puts the ideas of modern psychology to the test, distilling what is of value to everyday life.
We all have our limits, our own red lines, but we spend a lot of time with huge margins between what we do and what we can do. This is a book about how to approach the red lines of maximum performance and be rewarded with maximum satisfaction.
"Emotional, heart-warming and thought provoking. A characterful story of persistence, dedication and the love of a life, with sport.
Dame Kelly Holmes, double Olympic champion
