Listen to a live 20-minute interview with Mina on:
Therese Borchard’s Beyond Blue Blog post on Run Like a Girl.
Read Astrid van den Broek’s interview with Mina for the Chatelaine Happiness Blog.
“There are lots of good sports books, but rarely beautifully-written ones. Run Like A Girl is both.”
“A chicken soup for the athlete’s soul.”
“An enthusiastic tribute to women who replace the stigma attached to the term “running like a girl” with a sense of power and honor.””
“...a compelling argument that women who run are much more likely to lead fulfilling lives in any number of ways...”
“an engaging read that will have most women nodding their heads in agreement and motivated to keep at the sports they love.”
“A book that is needed and important and life changing—all the things running has been for us!”
For anyone looking for a dose of inspiration before lacing up their sneakers, this book is it: part manifesto, part motivation, use it to go a little farther, faster and feel better about every step. It’s like a breath of fresh air on a day when you want to be outside, in the bright sunshine, enjoying a great run. Now you will be.
“A compelling and insightful book about using sport and physical activity to balance the extraordinary challenges women face...a ‘must read’ for women athletes and non-athletes alike.”
"I was hooked after the first page. Run Like A Girl reminds me, once again, the power and importance of sport in young girls and women's lives. As a mom and an athlete, I will continue to proudly run like a girl and support my kids as they do the same!"
Run Like a Girl celebrates the power of sports and fitness in all aspects of life. It speaks to the true gift and value of sport-- defining who we are.
“Run Like a Girl: How Strong Women Make Happy Lives strikes a chord and illustrates the transformative power of sports for women and girls. Sports enlighten, shape, and strengthen us, oftentimes enabling us to live the life we have always dreamed of. Thank you, Mina, for your commitment to documenting these stories and lessons.”
“...a refreshing read...”
