Competition : Win a copy of The Lazy Runner by Laura Fountain

To celebrate reaching seven days of the Zero Calorie Advent Calendar we’ve decided its time for another competition!

Laura Fountain - who writes Lazy Girl Running - has very generously given us a copy of her eBook The Lazy Runner to give away to one lucky winner.



The Lazy Runner follows Laura Fountain from starting out as a novice runner – unfit, clueless about running, and incredibly lazy – to finishing her first marathon, and beyond. At first unable to run 400 metres without stopping, Laura has now completed five marathons, the most recent in under four hours. Along the way, Laura learns countless lessons about running, most of them the hard way. But most importantly this self-confessed couch potato learns to love running. As well as offering inspiration and motivation to get out there and run, her book offers tips on how to make running easier and more enjoyable. Offering practical information on buying the right kit, choosing the best race and what to do on race day, it also tackles the important running questions you might be embarrassed to ask – like when will it get easier? And what happens if I need the toilet?

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is tweet the second half of this sentence to @ZeroCalAdvent and @LazyGirlRunning

“I need a copy of The Lazy Runner because … “

Good luck!


The competition will run from 11am GMT on 7th December 2013 and close at 11am GMT on 14th December 2013. The winner will be chosen and announced at 6pm GMT on 14th December 2013
