I have Born to Run by Christopher McDougall on my ipad as bedtime reading at the moment. I am finding the Tarahumana and Ultra marathoners like "Caballo Blanco" and Ann Trason absolutely fascinating. Running has opened up a whole new interest for me. I have always been interested in epic journeys/escapes but these people take endurance to a whole new level and blow all current running "rules" out of the window. I think the release of this book coincided with the new trend for "barefoot" running.
Has anyone else read this book or other accounts of ultramarathoners?
