Morning Reading Nov. 25.

I confess, dear reader, that the title does leave much to be desired, doesn’t it. Don’t worry, I’m working on that. These morning posts may only have have the date in the title for now, but I’m working on something creative and puny to give y’all a glimpse of what’s inside from day to day. 208 more words

Book Review: Natural Born Heroes, by Christopher McDougall

In late 2011 I read Born to Run by Christopher McDougall and I’ll readily admit it was, alongside Jurek’s similarly named Eat and Run, a key catalyst in my descent/ascent into the wonderful world of ultra running. 425 more words

Born to Run

Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall, 4/5

It’s no wonder this entertaining tale is a bestseller that helped fuel the natural running craze–it has all the right ingredients: a mysterious Mexican tribe renowned for long-distance running ability, a legendary and equally mysterious American runner who gained their trust, superhuman athletes running ultramarathons in unbelievably punishing conditions, scientific evidence that natural running is…well…natural, and all told from an intoxicating “everyman” perspective that makes you feel that you too could learn to run forever. 235 more words

Review: Natural Born Heroes

When I heard that Christopher McDougall had written a new book, I immediately became excited. His last one, the opus, the bible, Born to Run was a meandering journey of inspiration through the world of ultra running. 1,317 more words
