At the advice of “nwyank,” I read Christopher McDougall’s Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.
Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, last week, I had lots of time on my hands. We had a 120-hour stretch with no power (or heat, cable and internet). And, when it was daylight, I would read the book. But, it was so good that I also read it by flashlight after the sun went down.
Of course, I am late to this party. The book is a National Bestseller and came out in 2009. But, if you run and have not read this one yet, you should check it out. It’s a amazing. And, even if you don’t run, it’s a fascinating story and you will enjoy this book.
