"We run because it makes us feel like heroes."
Elinor has been running for 8 years now and in the build up to her first Marathon she muses on how running can empower women, giving us a whole new perspective on what body-beautiful really is. In a powerful message to her daughters and all of their generation, she celebrates a different type of womanhood.
Writer Elinor Johns lives in Hertfordshire with her family. She gave up teaching in 2008 and gained an MA in Creative Writing, with distinction, in 2017. In the intervening years she learned how empowering running could be.
