Born to Run by Christopher McDougall Book Cover

This month in our personal development book a month challenge, we'll be reading a book that has developed a cult like following in the running circle.  A National Bestseller, Born to Run by Christopher McDougall will challenge you to reconsider just what the human body is capable of.

Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathlete, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen by Christopher McDougall transports us to a hidden tribe in Mexico that regularly runs for hundreds of miles without rest or injury. A runner himself who had experienced frequent injuries, McDougall sets off to discover the secrets of the peaceful Tarahumara Indians and takes us along with him in this story.

One of the main characters in the story, Scott Jurek, recently broke the Appalachian Trail record by running 2,189 miles of rugged terrain in 46 days, 8 hours, and 7 minutes. That's almost 50 miles a day, or two marathons EVERY DAY for 46 days.

An entertaining story and a quick read, I believe this will both entertain you, and challenge your beliefs on what the human body is really capable of.

Stories like this inspired me to take my own journey from an overweight old dude whose idea of fitness involved the long walk between the couch and the fridge to completing 3 of the toughest events on the planet. Half marathon muddy obstacle courses designed to torture and stretch you called Tough Mudders, these things are brutal, something I never would have thought I could complete at one point.

I hope you will be inspired after reading this to get up and conquer the obstacles in your own journey towards health. I'll be rooting for you!
