  1. 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 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 alon [...]


  2. Although I m not an avid runner by any means, nor have I really ever been, I found this book to be a great read It s an engrossing, entertaining, and well written story about the author s boldly persistent adventures during an unwavering quest for elusive answers to perplexing questions.And, as any great read might do it allowed me to feel connected, however remotely, to interesting peoples and exotic places I probably wouldn t ve ever been able to imagine existed no matter how many years I migh [...]


  3. I have never in my life been interested in being a runner I struggled with the mile in school, and assumed that any 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 [...]


  4. 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 This book is fascinating with its descriptions of the running tribes of Mexico, the quirky people the author meets along his journey to better understand ultra running, the discussions of how better running equipment hurts runners, and the description of the exciting race that is the conclusion of the book I didn t expect to really like t [...]


  5. 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 As an avid cyclist in the mid 80 s I would experience a surreal sense of bliss on long training rides and I long for that again 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 [...]


  6. 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.


  7. I was expecting a basic book about running and fitness not an epic tale of the history of the tribe featured in the book Stories about the history of the region The history of ultra races and all the characters who are involved in that crazy sport and the science of barefoot running the human foot and history of modern day shoes that seem to be the cause of injuries That with a running tale of trying to set up this once in a lifetime race that the author of the book is taking part in, in a dange [...]


  8. Quite simply one of the best books I have ever read If not the best it s within the top 5.I ve recently taken up running properly and this book spurred me on and inspired me deeply.It s a wonderful tale of many micro stories wrapped together wonderfully well Educational too And by the way my other top books are Gut Gulia Ender s The Shadow of the Wind Carl Rus Zaffon Revelations Jonny Daws Mans Search for Meaning Viktor Frankl So it s not like I m a running reading fanatic It was recommended to [...]
