Inhaltsangabe

Every sport has rules. Running is no exception. If you're curious, just visit the Web site of USA Track & Field, the sport's governing body, where you'll find detailed dictates on everything from disqualification to bib-number placement to the caliber of the starter's pistol. But what about the everyday rules of running? The unspoken ones that pertain to the lingo, behavior, and etiquette that every seasoned runner seems to know and every newbie needs to learn? Veteran runner Mark Remy and the editors of Runner's World magazine provide answers to these very questions and many more in The Runner's Rule Book. With 100+ rules that cover the basics of running, racing, track etiquette, and apparel and gear, including hilarious running commentary on running culture, The Runner's Rule Book will be the reference guide you'll turn to again and again for answers to your burning running questions.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Highly entertaining but also very helpful

Very amusing and highly entertaining. The 'Runners Rule Book' by Runnersworldmag's Mark Remy has, besides being very ironic and sometimes even sarcastic, one big strength: it can really communicate some hints most runners (including myself) desperately needed. I am not speaking of training tips or medical advice. Nothing that would grant you a new PR or qualification time for the Boston Marathon. It's more about those embarrassing situations you maneuver yourself into, finding out much too late (days, months, years after it happened) what had actually wrong. Subdivided into 4 sections (Basics, racing, gear and rules of thumb) there's hardly any topic that remains untouched. Also highly entertaining: the appendix including the 14 types of runners, the pee matrix and a guide on how to correctly pronounce running brands. No idea what to expect? Something like this: Rule 2.32: DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO FINISH AHEAD OF A COSTUMED RUNNER - Because being outkicked by Elmo is too much to bear.
