Born to Run,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born to Run: The Hidden Tribe, the Ultra-Runners, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Paperback)
I was a little disappointed that the emphasis moved away from the Tarahumara and became more of a self-indulgent piece by the author with name-dropping on many pages of his friends and acquiantances and their record breaking achievemens in ultra running events (me thinks that the Tarahumara wouldn't have been too interested either!). However, there were some interesting sections such as how we runners have been manipulated by running shoe companies - plenty of food for thought there!
