Each afternoon, a jogger sets off for six laps of his local park, but these daily outings soon turn into infuriating encounters with the running world's most bizarre, beguiling and exasperating people. And, as anyone who runs knows, there are no shortage of those.
The action begins with an encounter that would test the patience of a jogging saint: a face-to-face meeting with the taunting jiggles of the Savage Ponytail.
The encounters soon become stranger--and funnier. Our jogging hero finds himself in an exhausting duel with a runner who refuses to be overtaken; and facing off against a dog walker who is convinced that her snarling, sock-biting pet is actually a harmless pooch. (Spoiler: it's not).
Finally, there is a face-off with the running world's most dangerous character: the Dream Lover, a beautiful jogging stranger who smiles suggestively when passing by, and might or might not be the love of your life.
The Savage Ponytail is a running book with a difference. Based on author Malcolm Costain's innumerable runs in parks and tracks around the world, it offers short, fast-paced stories of dry humour that will not only cause a laugh but offer reassurance that you aren't the only runner who loves this sport but sometimes finds your fellow athletes strange, if not exasperating.
If you ever cross the street to avoid a fellow runner, The Savage Ponytail is for you.
