    An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt?

    Isolated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America’s best ultra-runners against the tribe. McDougall’s incredible story will not only engage your mind but inspire your body when you realize that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.

      The product is fine, however it took 22 days to get to me from time of order. To me, this is not a reasonable amount of time.

    • Excellent book I would recommend to many...

      Initially I thought this was a barefoot running book, however to my surprise and delight the book was not about convincing people to barefoot run. The story told by a new york writer can be confusing due to the flip flopping back and forth between stories, but if you follow it well the book makes perfect sense and is a joy to read. There is somewhat of a plug towards barefoot running and it definitely supports that point, however if you know what your stance is on running barefoot the book does not convince or try to force you into thinking you should run barefoot. An easy read (I read it each night before going to sleep to wind down), and very pleasurable read. Overall a great book.
