(ebook) Born to Run

I basically defied him to turn me into a runner. And by the end of nine months, I was cranking out four hour runs without a problem. Is there a body type for running, as many of us assume, or are all humans built to run?

I bought into that bull for a loooong time. Is running really for everyone? The ultrarunners have got a hold of some powerful wisdom. You can see it at the starting line of any ultra race. Get a load of the hotties! And that, to a T, describes the daily life of an ultrarunner. Can you explain?

After twenty- seven, they start to decline. Editorial Reviews site. site Exclusive: There are rogues aplenty here, such the deadly narco-traffickers who roam Copper Canyon, but there are many more who inspire, such as the Tarahumara runners, who show the rest of the world the false limitations we place on human endurance.

Reading this book made me want to weep. Not because it was sad but because finally I could read something that really touched my soul. I am a newbie at running. I have only until quite recently taken up running as one of my more favorite activities. Running the miles helped to give me perspective.

Much needed perspective from my failed relationship with the love of my life, from close friends that I have lost because of that failed relationship, then having to feel that I have lost my mind and myself along the way, and dealing with other not so palatable people in my life. It seemed like the only time that I could be free was when I ran. So you have to forgive me when I say that reading about how running brings out the best in humanity and how we connect when we go back to our true selves and truly be kind and compassionate, really really spoke to me.

Somehow I always knew that this is the truth and that to read the words saying so made me profoundly happy. Aside from the humanity aspects, the book is beautifully written with good grace, wisdom and humor, not to mention the amount of research and thought that have been poured into this book. Thank you for writing this.

I need to reread it again. Paperback Verified download. To be honest I never thought that I would ever believe that I could read a book around the topic of running and enjoy it, but this has turned into one of my all time favorite books and changed the way I think about running.

Distance running is the fountain of youth if done correctly , and this book both inspires you to run and gives you tips on how to run without hurting your body. I am not a runner. I have never been a runner and doubt I ever will be.

But if, at 72 years old, I ever decide to become one, it will be because I read this book. I have already recommended it to my book club.

I am not a runner but that will be changing soon. I could not put this book down once I started. At the age of 60, I am going through a renaissance of sorts.

Briefly I dabbled in running then too and had the same experience. Fast forward 30 years and with a renewed interest in optimal health as I age, recent weight loss and lifestyle change is stirring that hunger again for feeling connected. While I will never be an ultra marathon athlete , I will aspire to apply similar discipline along with hard work and inspiration to find joy in my athletic quest as in my daily life. Highly recommend, great storytelling that will interest runner and non runner alike.

I have never in my life been interested in being a runner.

I struggled with the mile in school, and assumed that any more than that was impossible for me to achieve. I only read this book because my boyfriend and his family all enjoy running and they suggested it as a book that might pique my interest-- they were totally right.

After starting this book I started to run regularly and I even got into the habit of reading a chapter right before I hit the trails each day. It really does a great job of filling you with the feeling that humans are meant to run, and that running fills you with a joy that you cannot find elsewhere. I am sad that it is over and make a point to recommend it to anyone I know who might be slightly curious about running, so if you're here, I recommend it to you!

What an interesting concept: I remember distinctly the thrill of running as a child - the love of the feel of the wind on my face, the sweet freedom of my feet pounding the pavement and then I hit my teen years and it became a punishment for not making a basket or for picking up a foul during a game. The joy was gone and therefore my desire to run died with that. I received this book, Born to Run, in exchange for my honest opinion.

This book is a fascinating read about the journey of a man tying together the idea that we were born to run, training to run an ultra himself and studying a unique group of people who well into adulthood, maintain the sheer joy of the run, therefore producing the most prolific long-distance runners.

While I was reading this, I found myself deeply engrossed in the story and wishing I could sit down with the author to really pick his brain and go down the rabbit hole with him about his experiences. I was inspired to commit myself to running again and to do so in a joyful way, without the toils and rules of running that we as a society place on it - but more so in a way to engage with myself while I move.

It's almost like a novelized version of a motivational speech and one that I wish I could see in person! Wonderfully written, great tone and insightful.

Well written, insightful and appealing story that looks inside the human legacy of endurance training and physical achievement. Our ancestry developed and cherished survival skills that we have somehow morphed into a fringe culture and idiosyncratic sport: Better to enhance our physical gifts and reach for the extreme than to reduce our biological skill-set to decrepitude under the influence of reality TV or social media His problem with Math s unfortunately isn't limited to the use of hyperbole with percentages.

He unwittingly shows his problem, in typical journalistic style, in rather stark detail! On page , to work out how much older than 27 is an age that is equivalent to the increase in age from 19 to 27, he has to get out his notebook!! I flipped my notebook to a blank page and started jotting numbers. It takes Point made. But it is the disingenuous nature of much of his writing that I really took exception to.

I will give two examples: One: who do you think ran the fastest? Well, I can tell you: Lance Armstrong, by a long way. In his 'shuffle' resulted in a time of and he came th out of 37, finishers; a brilliant result for a first marathon and ten minutes under the very fastest age group Boston qualifying time! And Barefoot Ted?

In he completed the Boston Marathon in , coming in 3,th out of 19, finishers.

Not a shuffle either, but in a completely different, and slower, league. In fact, to refer to a result under three hours faster than seven minutes a mile as a shuffle is just gratuitiously insulting. McDougall seems to have a downer on Armstrong, as he slates him elsewhere in the book - the reason never becomes apparent.

Charges for international delivery destinations are available below. Well, yes it is. Could it just be that the downloaders of more expensive shoes are those runners who push the boundaries of their training more aggressively?

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. It doesn't fit into any easy category, but it fulfills my requirements in several. The climactic race reads like a sprint. Part of that's going to be because I don't train for endurance and part of that is because I have no clue what I'm doing.
