5.0 out of 5 stars fascinating and inspirational, 20 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born to Run: The Rise of Ultra-running and the Super-athlete Tribe (Hardcover)
Fascinating and inspirational, "Born to Run" is both a celebration of the human species (we are built for long distance running) and of humanity (camaraderie among the great runners and among the Tarahumara people). It is filled with exciting true stories of endurance races and biographical accounts of great ultrarunners, as well as interesting scientific studies on human anatomy and running. All these are very well presented, the book is so well-written and constructed that after a few chapters, it was very difficult to put down.

As a flat-footed, orthotic-wearer who gave up on running nearly 15 years ago, I am inspired to strengthen these feet and start running again. I'd be surprised if this book doesn't get majority of its readers on the roads and trails.
