26.2 Miles to Happiness: A Comedian's Tale of Running, Red Wine and Redemption [9781472966261]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The hilarious trials and tribulations of stand-up comedian Paul Tonkinson as he attempts to beat the much lauded 3-hour mark at the London Marathon.

With a supporting cast of fellow comedians, this is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure-through-sport that will both entertain and inspire.

Along the way, we are introduced to the characters helping Paul with his quest.

Celebrity names such as Bryony Gordon, Russell Howard, Roisin Conaty and Vassos Alexander pop up with wit and wisdom, alongside an alpine adventure to the Mayr Clinic with Michael McIntyre that pushes Paul to the limit.

And not forgetting the 'words of wisdom' and derision from Paul's anti-running friend, Richard.


AUTHOR: Paul Tonkinson has been a regular on the UK comedy circuit for over 25 years, playing both public gigs and corporate events, and regularly taking shows to the Edinburgh Festival. He was a presenter on Channel 4's Big Breakfast and has regularly appeared on the BBC, ITV and Sky1. Paul is one half of the podcast Running Commentary with Rob Deering. Paul also writes a monthly column for Runner's World magazine.
