I’ve just finished reading “”Born to Run” by Chris McDougall – a fascinating read for runners AND non-runners.

Primarily focussed on the tale of the Tarahumara (Raramuri) of Copper Canyon, Mexico, Chris McDougall’s gripping writing covers subjects as diverse as anthropology, shoe technology and the economic roots of the Leadville 100 race.

The overall tone and sentiment of the book is one of secular humanism and the sheer joy of the running experience made me want to lace up my shoes and head out the door.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
