The book included many photos and here are just a sample! I look at the outfits from head to toe and can’t imagine the uncomfortableness they must have felt. The sport was certainly not about fashion, but then again, maybe they thought they "were all that"!
The writers talk about "What’s In It For You?" and their points are timeless:
improves the heart and lungs
you look and feel better
helps you loose weight
builds endurance and confidence
jog alone or with others
Other points they discuss shows where times have changed:
no special equipment
jogging is thrifty
no food fads
any informal outfit is appropriate
wear a light sweater over a t-shirt
I shared this book with my running friends who got just as many laughs out of it as I did and each one of them returned it to me with their own funny comments written on little yellow sticky notes stuck to the pictures! They made me laugh even more!
