Runnur

Regarded by many as the finest running book ever written. Who am I to argue. Rarely have I found myself so engrossed in a story with my imagination running wild at the turn of every page.

I started reading Born to Run with no idea what the main premise of the book was about. But as the story unfolds and you start to learn about the Tarahumara and their amazing endurance you soon become hooked.

If I hadn’t known better I would have thought some of the tales were fiction. The characters in this book are both fascinating and inspiring. The efforts of the ultra runners that the author meets are super-human.

There are certain chapters in the book that are educational too, although some of the points made are clearly not agreed upon by everyone, as i found out when I shared the insight on twitter. So make of the claims what you will, but just be wary about changing your own running beliefs.

I don’t want to spoil this book by giving too much away. Any review I post can’t really do it justice. So just pick yourself up a copy and enjoy the journey. You can thank me afterwards.

Running with the Kenyans

Please give it a read. If you can take courage from the challenge and experience Finn took on, then it can only help you improve your running.

Eat Drink Run

It makes a change to read a book about a non runner and how exercising made her believe in herself and bury her demons.
