Every sport has rules. Running is no exception. Anyone who's curious can visit the Web site ofUSA Track & Field, the sports governing body, to bone up on such topics as bib number placement, disqualification, and what caliber the starter's pistol must be. Those rules are good and necessary. But what about the real rules of running? The ones that address everyday, pedestrian concerns on the road, at the gym, or on the starting line? Very few runners agonize over the proper width of a painted finish line. (No less than 5 centimeters on a road course.) But what runner hasn't paused to ask himself: How can I tell if I'm a jogger or a runner? or Was that fellow runner being a jerk by not returning my friendly hello as we passed each other? or When is it acceptable to run shirtless, and when is it not? or What are the guidelines for clearing ones nose on the run?The Runners Rule Bookaddresses these questions and many more in a clear, crisp manner that's entertaining while still being useful. Complete with illustrative cartoons, each of the 75 rules stands alone as its own very short chapter. Easy to pick up and hard to put down,The Runners Rule Bookis the quintessential slim volume for runners. And while it makes a perfect gift, its evergreen utility and entertainment value make it a must-have for any runner with a sense of humor.
