Reviews: Born to Run; Spirit of the Marathon

Marjorie Brinton reviews the book ‘Born to Run’ by Christopher McDougall in the Durango Herald article, ‘Long-distance running reflects human nature.’ ‘Born to Run’ tells the story of the Tarahumara Indians of Copper Canyon, Mexico.

I watched the film Spirit of the Marathon last night. Spirit of the Marathon shows the stories of six runners as they prepare for the 2005 Chicago Marathon. As an injured runner, I really identified with how the other runners dealt with their injuries and persevered. I enjoyed this movie and would recommend it to other runners, especially those comtemplating the marathon.
