"The best running book ever! Comprehensive, inspiring and beautifully produced."


- Irish Examiner, February 2019

Mary's book, 'Get Running', topped the best sellers list in it's first week of launch in 2019.

Get Running is full of advice, training plans and sensible tips to stop you doing anything too crazy on your running journey. But it’s not just a manual for how to get started and how to keep going.

It also includes stories and tips from many of the runners Mary has had the pleasure of coaching and sharing miles with for long over a decade.

There are chapters on everything from ‘getting started’ to ‘making it fun’, ‘going long distance’ and of course most importantly how to actually ‘enjoy running’.

There are plenty photos and quotes from running buddies of all ages and levels of experience who have been so generous to share their secrets and the benefits that running has brought to their lives.
