BELLA MACKIE will talk about her book Jog On which tells the story of how running saved her life.
Unhappy and struggling with deep-rooted health problems, Bella Mackie ended her twenties in tears. She could barely find the strength to get off the sofa, let alone piece her life back together. Until one day she pulled on a pair of trainers and went for a run. And did so again and again. Before she knew it, her mood was lifting for the first time in years, and she had swapped hiding in her house for fresh air, unknown roads, and running, running, running; and, loving life again! In her book Jog On, Bella explains, with hilarious and unfiltered honesty, how running saved her life!
Omer Homer came to England from a beautiful but troubled part of the world, where the only and necessary bit of running he did was across minefields. One day, his luck ran out and an exploding landmine caused him serious injuries. In Swindon, he found friendship and things to do, most healing of which was going for a run, in safety. As a result, his running has taken off and so has his life!
