#69 Bryony Gordon: Mental Health & Marathons

Bryony Gordon is a writer and columnist at the Telegraph and a Sunday Times bestselling author of two memoirs, The Wrong Knickers and Mad Girl. The Wrong Knickers came out in 2014, a memoir of "hedonistic antics" during her single life and Mad Girl picked in the most recent Richard and Judy Book Club is an honest account of life living a mental illness specifically OCD. Last year, Bryony founded Mental Health Mates a regular meet-up for people with mental health issues, where they could walk and talk without fear of judgement. It’s grown hugely and is now situated in several locations around the UK and in America. We talk about how running has helped Bryony’s mental health, how she works and writes, what it means to have a book about mental health in mainstream book clubs, and why it’s OK to have bad days, weeks or years sometimes.
