Still running, still nuts. Whether you are just getting acquainted with the joys of running or you can recite the brand and model number of your last 12 pairs of running shoes, you'll identify with this book as runners did with the popular first volume, "I Run, Therefore I Am - Nuts!". Bestselling running humourist Bob Schwartz is back and will once again have you laughing as he captures the humour, craziness and obsessions of runners new and old, with this new collection of 43 hilarious stories. If you know that the iliotibial band is not an alternative rock group, wear bruised toenails like badges of honour, and know the feeling of having an elephant resting on your shoulders as you've hit the wall, this book is for you!
