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.

He's maybe not bionic but it is brilliant listen.

Everyman" Ira Rainey has written another funny, accessible and real life account of running, training, ultramarathons, and the struggles with modern day life and mood. A brilliant sequel to "Green Man to Ultraman", the story continues on exactly where it left off, giving a superb real world account of Ira training for his first 100 miler and the ups and downs along the way.

Ira isn't Kílian Jornet, he isn't Dean Karnazes, and that's what makes these books such a brilliant listen and an inspiration for the "average joe" (and by that I mean non-elite!!) runner.

Whilst the narration is great, it's a shame to have a change of narrator between the first and second books, as I do link a voice to a writer.

Bring on the next one Ira.
