Born to Run

By: Christopher McDougall

Book - Paperback

An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt?

solated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America

Hendersonville Classic 5k
Model of Efficiency - 2014 Race
By: A. G. - (Hendersonville, TN)
This race was the model of efficiency. Packet pickup was quick and easy, and there were ample guides along the route, including cyclists checking on participants. More than enough water was available, and although the organizers probably had nothing to do with this, it was quite nice to have seventy degrees and a few light rain showers along the route...

Country Music Half Marathon
Country Music Half Marathon Review - 2014 Race
By: George Semar - (Nashville, TN)
What makes this race stand out? My first 1/2 marathon, also my first race ever. Packet pickup was easy, even for a beginner. Plenty of water stations. Went home and rested after the race so can't rate the post race entertainment.
