Born to Run The astonishing national bestseller and hugely entertaining story that completely changed the way we run.

An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt?
Isolated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America’s best ultra-runners against the tribe. McDougall’s incredible story will not only engage your mind but inspire your body when you realize that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.

    Så fantastisk inspirerande att läsa om alla dessa möjligheter inom löpning. Att förstå den otroliga viljan som dom största löparna besitter går säkert aldrig, men jag ska göra mitt bästa på alla mina framtida upplevelser med löpning Tack för att det finns folk som skriver med passion om löpning och vänskap Dennis Jensen

    You don't have to be a runner to appreciate this book. But if you are you'll probably love it even more.
