Running: Cheaper Than Therapy - A Celebration of Running
Publisher: Bloomsbury Sport
Running: Cheaper than Therapy is a witty and expertly compiled compendium of running wisdom and humour.
From fantastic running quotes ('How do you know if someone ran a marathon? Don't worry, they'll tell you.' Jimmy Fallon) and hilarious spectator signs ('Worst parade ever!') to witty potted profiles of different types of runners (charity muggers, gadget gurus and inexplicably good old dears) and PB-busting training tips, Running: Cheaper than Therapy is designed to be the perfect gift for the runner, jogger or triathlete in your life.
Written by a Telegraph and Guardian journalist and self-confessed running nut, this smartly packaged and brilliantly knowing miscellany details entertaining, real-life runners' stories (being overtaken by a kid/OAP or getting lost while training) and takes a humorous look at the mistakes runners make (wearing a brand new pair of trainers for half marathon or getting so pumped by your morning run you have arguments with everyone at work).
