Product description

Product Description


You know who they are. You might even be one. 
Each afternoon, a jogger laces up his running shoes and sets off for six laps of his local park. All he wants is to run in peace, but these daily outings soon turn into infuriating encounters with the running world's most bizarre, beguiling and exasperating people.

And as any one who jogs knows, there is 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 a savage ponytail, the kind that overtakes and then hangs around to rub it in. 

Soon, the encounters soon become stranger--and funnier. 

Our jogging hero finds himself in an exhausting duel with a stony-faced plodder who refuses to be overtaken; and facing off against a dog walker convinced her sock-biting hell hound is actually a harmless little doggy. 

Yeah, right. 

Finally, there is a heartbreaking clash with the running world's most dangerous and seductive creation: a beautiful, honey-limbed stranger who smiles suggestively when passing by, and who might or might not be the love of your life---the one you've been waiting for. 

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's packed with 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 would ever cross the street to avoid a fellow runner, The Savage Ponytail is for you.

Click to download The Savage Ponytail now and let the exasperation begin!--with the runners, not the stories, which you are sure to love.
