Book Review: Why We Run, by Bernd Heinrich
By scottjolly on Oct 23, 2008
I was looking for a book to help me pass time on my flight from Portland and went into the greatest bookstore ever, Powells, but not the downtown one sadly. The Bill Bryson book on Shakespeare looked interested but the ultramarathoner/biologist book on running looked even better. The author is a world class runner and quite interesting. He talks alot about the animal kingdom and how different animals propel themselves as a way for him to look at his training for a 100k race in Chicago. The book is an easy read and educational as well. Glad I bought it.
