Born to run by Christopher Mcdougall
Born to run is a take on running now days, and if we should have kept the old ways. The author, Christopher, goes into the the Mexican wilderness to follow, little short of a fairytale. He’s trying to track down a man who, it is said, has connections to the Rarámuri. The Rarámuri, meaning running people, are a group of Indians untouched by the grasp of time, still using the ancient methods for foraging and hunting for food and running all day every day, for miles and miles in the searing desert sun. Christopher believes he can learn the secrets of this solitary race and learn to run like he’s floating on air. Meanwhile, he also gives us a brief summary of human evolution, and running’s part in it.
