  2. I always get ‘how do I get your job’ questions, so I’d love to get your answer to that since we’re pretty similar!
  3. What made you choose to write Mindful Running?
  4. Who is this book for? What will someone get out of reading it?
  5. What is Mindful Running, exactly?
  6. You divide into 3 steps, focus, fathom and flow: can we run through these and dig into each a bit?
  7. I LOVE the rules of engagement (p47): can we run through them?
  8. How can someone start getting into it, without adding stress to runs?
  9. How can you use it from a racing perspective?
  10. Best apps/books/etc. for finding out more on mindfulness?
