Running: Cheaper Than Therapy: A Celebration of Running  by Chas Newkey-Burden

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 profiles of different types of runners (street fundraisers, gadget gurus) and 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 journalist and self-confessed running nut, this smartly packaged and brilliantly knowing miscellany details entertaining, real-life runners' stories (being overtaken by a kid or getting lost while training) and takes a humorous look at the mistakes runners make (wearing a brand new pair of sneakers for half marathon or getting so pumped by your morning run you have arguments with everyone at work).
