You can read my original thoughts about Born to Run, but here’s a few reason that EVERYONE should read it.
1. It’s really fun. At it’s core, the book is a mystery story: how can seeming Stone Age Native Mexicans accomplish feats that allude the best trained American athletes? The journey takes you through badlands, past drug dealers, to the Rocky Mountains and Death Valley, and back in time thousands of years.
2. It’s a must read for runners. The stories of average people doing things that seem superhuman inspires you to get out there and push yourself.
3. It explains the funny toe socks everyone is wearing. It will convince you to wear them, too.
4. It will make you proud of your sweat. It’s the reason you can outrun a deer.
But seriously, one of the most fun and fascinating reads ever. When you’re done, let me know, and we’ll discuss it over a chia fresca.
