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, 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.

“All you want from a good book; makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you think.”
Sam Ayers, Running Coach, BodyFit Cumbria
