Born To Run

We are happy to present this year's Community Read book

"Born to Run"by Christopher McDougall

Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and pure inspiration, 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.

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 also to find his own inner ultra-athlete as he trained for the challenge of a lifetime:  a fifty mile race in the Tarahumara territory, pitting tribe members against an odd band of Americans, including a star ultra-marathoner, a beautiful young surfer, and a barefoot wonder.

Pick up a copy of the book at the library Circulation Desk, and join the many community programs scheduled during September and October at neighborhood libraries.
