Bought it because of the title. Has barely anything to do with running. It’s a bunch of short stories about hardship in pre- and post-war Britain. It’s very well written and the author managed to keep my attention although the genre usually isn’t interesting to me. Still, I wouldn’t put it on a recommendations list.
