Super Athletes

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on August 17, 2009 in Odum Library

Christopher McDougall‘s Born to Run: a Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World has Never Seen investigates the amazing athletic abilities of Mexico’s Tarahumara tribe, for whom running is a fine art; as McDougall says, “the art of combining our breath and mind and muscles into fluid self-propulsion over wild terrain.”

It’s available to check out at the moment, at BROWSE GV 1061.23 .M6 M33 2009 (BROWSE books, mostly New York Times bestsellers, are on the first floor near the temporary Circulation desk)
