Every sport has its own set of rules and running is no exception. Now you may be hard pushed to think of any apart from jumping the gun or running out of your lane, but if you pay a visit to the USA Track & Field website, the online home of the sport’s governing body, you will find the detailed rules on everything from the placement of your bib number to the caliber of the starting pistol. There are, however, also many unspoken rules pertaining to running such behavior, etiquette and lingo, and every runner, whether a complete newbie or well established, just learn these. A fascinating book for anyone with a penchant for running.
