No problem amigo, the missing photos from 2006 Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon organised by Caballo Blanco (maybe some of the pictures will somehow find their way into the paperback version later on) by Luis Escobar can be viewed here and here. There are also three slideshows (look for Playground Picture Show in the sidebar) here.
I just finished reading the book that I expected to be very good, but I must say I was mistaken. It is way better than I could ever have imagined!
My initial thought is that at last Scott 'El Venado' Jurek has a fair chance to literally compete - and hands down beat - Dean 'Ultramarathon Man' Karnazes.
Obviously Mr Dougall, a former war correspondent for AP and contributing editor for Men's Health, knows a thing or two about how to pen catchy articles. Still, long-distance running can be a challenging subject for any author attempting a full-length novel.
Dougall pulls it off admirably, like a danbrown of endurance sports, with actually something important to say, and tells his story mimicking the running style of the heroes of his book: easy, light and smooth.
The following description on the sleeve first seemed like the usual ad-lie, but now after reading this masterpiece it feels more like a modest understatement: "With wit and exuberance, McDougall takes us from science labs at Harvard to sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit. Born to Run is that rare book that will not only engage your mind but also inspire your body - when you realize that the secret to happiness is right at your feet, and that all of us were born to run."
My recommendation is to get this life-changing book and read it right now, because all runners will eventually do so anyway - and then probably regret the delay.
