Born to Run

Shin splints forced me to quit running two years ago. I thought it was the concrete sidewalks, because I never had the problem of shin splints during my teens, when I ran everyday on a clay track. This book suggests that there is something wrong with the way I run; toe pointed upwards, landing on my heel every stride.

I don’t read books, but this book kept me occupied for the better part of a day, and I was nearly half way through the same day. This book is as entertaining as it is informative; so far, at least. I’d say that it is an excellent read, especially for runners discouraged by constant injuries or people who just want to get out there and start running.
