I'm sure some people would love this read but it ended up boring me. I recycled it before I finished it.
The strange joy he takes from pain is something I can associate with when it comes to running. "If it doesn't hurt, you aren't doing it right" is something I have always lived by with my racing. He shows he is a man with great heart and love for his family and also complete strangers with his fundraising efforts. A great read that I would thoroughly recommend.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and its right what some people have said it'll definitely get you out and about for a run.
Whatever your personal challenge or perceived limits, it is worth a read as Dean is a great writer!

Excelente livro, daqueles que é difícil largar antes de terminar
Mentre lo leggevo la voglia di correre mi è salita di n volte, Dean è un matto ... ma matto di quella follia Bella e che ti emoziona !
Consiglio a tutti, anche ai non corridori !
Ich habe das Buch Ende 2008 gelesen und bin dann unverhoffterweise mit Familie beruflich nach Marin County gezogen, so daß ich viele Spots aus dem Buch auch live gesehen habe (insbesondere das Great Western....).
Gut ist auch, dass er schildert, wie er sich entwickelt hat, was er isst, wie er trainiert, etc. Auch wenn diese Angaben unglaubwürdig klingen (wie kann man über Wochen mit nur 4 Stunden Schlaf solche Leistungen bringen?).
Creo que si Scott Jurek leyese el primer capítulo sufriría una descomposición intestinal !!!
