Have you have been looking for some inspiration to get you back out on the track and running now that all the snow has melted? Then “Born to Run” is for you! Author and marathon runner Chris McDougall sets out to find the reclusive Tarahumara Native American tribe in the Copper Canyons of Mexico. Over the centuries, the Tarahumara have developed an almost super human ability to run ultra long distances without the need to rest and without incurring injuries, and they love every minute of it! Chris is joined on his journey by a quirky cast of American runners; “barefoot” Ted, who only runs without shoes on; Jen and Billy, a hard partying couple who always down plenty beers before a race; and the mysterious “Caballo Blanco” who is the only non-native person the Tarahumara seem to trust. Each member of the party seeks to unlock the secrets of the Tarahumara and ultimately put their skills to the test in a climatic race against the tribe’s best runners. Well written and well researched, pick up “Born to Run” and get out running! Check Our Catalog
