Book Review of Born to Run

Running Nina Suggests You Read Born to Run

At the beginning of the month, I suggested FitSugar readers create their own running blog using OnSugar — it's so easy! Running Nina was inspired to start her own so she could blog about her running and fitness adventures in Chicago. Here's the latest post from the Running Nina blog, reviewing the book Born to Run.

Born to Run started with McDougall asking a simple question, "Why does my foot hurt?" This question led him on a crazy journey to the Copper Canyons in Mexico, where the Tarahumara Indians live. The Tarahumara are a tribe of super-athletes who have, for hundreds of years, been running hundreds of miles without stopping. They run on some of the roughest terrain on Earth and they do it practically barefoot. In addition, they are incredibly healthy and immune to diseases that spread like wildfire in today's society.

To hear the rest of the review, head over to Running Nina. If this blog inspired you to create your own running or fitness blog, go to OnSugar and get started. I just may feature your blog here on FitSugar.
