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).

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
