I could go on and on and on about Born to Run. It was so amazing and inspiring and out of this world craziness. The fact that it is true, and the Tarahumara* really do exist just blows my mind. This book inspires me to find my inner joy when it comes to running. Do it for me. Now please don't misunderstand me, I am not really thinking I will be a competitve ultra marathon runner, but after reading the book I want to go get some pinole and chia and hit the trails! The reading is a bit choppy, but the story is beyond amazing.

Runners and non-runners alike would be sucked into this book. The determination of one man to fufill a dream and bring together 3 different cultures for an amazing race that will never be seen is just, in Stephanie's words, MAGICAL.

I've picked up 2 new books from the library and am already tearing into The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephanie Meyer and that will be followed by the greatly anticipated Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Happy Reading!

PS- They wear really beautiful clothing when they run. Click here to see the people the book is about (including Barefoot Ted! Yes! He runs barefoot... in the trails... over rocks and dirt and leaves... he's crazy!)
