Overview

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."

Inside you'll find:

Rule 1.18

LEARN, AND LOVE, THE FARMER'S BLOW

Farmer's Blow \ far-m?rz blo \ "n: a process by which one clears a nostril of mucus by pinching shut the opposing nostril and exhaling forcefully "
""
" syn: Snot Rocket] "
""
""Rule 2.32

DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO FINISH AHEAD OF A COSTUMED RUNNER

Because being outkicked by Elmo is too much to bear.

Rule 3.1

CALL THEM RUNNING SHOES

They aren't sneakers, or tennis shoes, or kicks, or trainers (sorry, Brits). They are running shoes. So call them that.

...and many, many more. 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."
