Running: Cheaper Than Therapy: A Celebration of Running

Author(s): Chas Newkey-Burden

Sport/Transport

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).
