Born to Run
Christopher McDougall

Born to Run is an epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? In search of an answer, Christopher McDougall sets off to find a tribe of the world's greatest distance runners and learn their secrets, and in the process shows us that everything we thought we knew about running is wrong.

Isolated by the most savage terrain in North America, the reclusive Tarahumara Indians of Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons are custodians of a lost art. For centuries they have practiced techniques that allow them to run hundreds of miles without rest and chase down anything from a deer to an Olympic marathoner while enjoying every mile of it. Their superhuman talent is matched by uncanny health and serenity, leaving the Tarahumara immune to the diseases and strife that plague modern existence. With the help of Caballo Blanco, a mysterious loner who lives among the tribe, the author was able not only to uncover the secrets of the Tarahumara but...
Not all those who wander are lost.

Great book! I got it from the library to listen to on my way to Michigan in June....Thanks to a suggestion last winter from QS.  PS I should have been paying more attention to the board. I would have loved to come to the mini-bender! I spent a week in Michigan paddling cool water, and then went on my first 5 day backpacking trip to CO :) Got excited to see a little rain in the BB countryside, and even more excited to see Dora, although she's dying :(
