A Born to Run Audiobook Review – Born to Run: The hidden tribe, the ultra runners, and the greatest race the world has never seen
By Christopher McDougall
As you might have guessed from my review of the Born to Run book, I enjoyed Christopher McDougall’s story of “The hidden tribe, the ultra-runners and the greatest race the world has never seen”, a great deal. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the audiobook. If you are a runner, or if you are thinking of buying the Born to Run book as a gift for a runner, this is the medium to get. What could be better than listening to this while running?
I was a little disappointed that it was not narrated by the author. But Fred Sanders does an admirable job in conveying the characters, story and adventure to the listener. The words leap out at you and are as every bit as striking as the literally work. Read aloud the story is just as funny as it is profound. It doesn’t lose any of its inspirational qualities either.
I like to click play to listen to the audiobook then fire up a 90 BPM click track on my Guitar Toolkit app on my iPhone. I find the combination works well to keep me motivated, enjoy the run and help stop getting injured. I would like to warn newbie bare foot runners to go very easy at first. Especially so if you are over weight. It takes time for your body to adjust to running like a child again. The long term benefits out weigh the initial discomforts though.
This audiobook will help convince you why it is so important to bin your bouncy heal strikers, for something more minimal. No, you don’t need to go bare foot, even Barefoot Ted wears sandals. But if you don’t land on your heel you will be much kinder to your body, and your body will thank you for it. With every step you take.
