Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage) by Christopher McDougall

Rao, January 30, 2013

Un-put-down-able!! This enthralling read took me through the fascinating story of brilliant minds, enduring bodies and the sheer joy of running. Humans are born to run, argues Chris McDougall. He backs this persuasive narrative with gripping scientific facts, jaw dropping endurance sport narratives and an inside look at the only and only Tarahumara tribe. Quite literally, I could feel the wind in my hair as I read this and did not want it to end! And end it did, in rousing finish line style as I could not help but cheer the runners tearfully. Masterpiece!
