Someone from my running group sent me this video a few days ago and I finally got around to watching it yesterday. It is Christopher McDougall, the author of Born To Run speaking.
For those that don’t know – Born To Run is a book by a runner (McDougall) written after he was searching for a cure for his injury prone running. He writes about the Tarahuamara Indians – a tribe of runners living in the canyons of Mexico.
They are super athletes – running for upwards of 50 miles at a time, injury free well into their senior years.
The book tells the story of McDougall’s adventurous trip to Mexico to run with the tribe. It’s not a “How to run” book, but a story about runners.
I read Born to Run about a year ago and loved it! I started eating Chia seeds after reading it and mention that here.
I woke up hungry and decided to eat before I ran. I really never do this, so I hope my run still goes well. My legs usually don’t cooperate with runs past 10am.
Question: Have you read Born To Run?
Any other running books you recommend?
