Publisher's Summary

If running extreme distances is as much about mental endurance as physical, how do you keep going when your internal monologue turns against you? That was the simple question Ira Rainey faced when the darkness of depression cast its long shadow over his life. It turned out the answer was far from simple.
Following on from award-winning Fat Man to Green Man: From Unfit to Ultramarathon, Ira's second book examines how important mental state, support, and friendship are, not just to running long distances but also to life and happiness as a whole.
This is not a book about winning, nor is it written as a guide, a how to nor an instruction manual. This is simply an honest window into the world of unremarkable ultramarathon running.
Still Not Bionic follows Ira's turbulent journey as he battles his inner demons across mountains, along coastal paths and beside canals in his attempt to undertake the ultimate quest of completing a 100-mile footrace across England.

Another great book!

Second book I’ve read by Ira Rainey, both excellent and impossible to put down! Nicely written and narrated, you don’t need to know anything about running to really enjoy this, as it’s not a detailed description of how to run more an insight into how it is for him to run. Highly recommended!!
