From Quicklet on Born to Run:
Born in 1962, Christopher McDougall is an American author and journalist with a penchant for covering the odd or extreme in the world: Frenchmen who work out in coconut trees, fugitive Mexican pop stars, and endurance running.
After graduating from Harvard, McDougall was hired by the Associated Press as their new Lisbon correspondent, despite lacking knowledge of both Portuguese and journalism.
After leaving the AP, McDougall wrote for a wide variety of publications, including Men’s Health and New York Times Magazine. In their pages, he covered a wide breadth of subjects, from why America hasn’t been hit by another terrorist attack since September 11 to “physiological oddities” like the health benefits of old lumberjack saws or the Tarahumara tribe of near superhuman ultrarunners.
First published in 2009, Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen became a New York Times bestseller, staying on the list for over four months and selling over 219,000 hardcover copies in its first year. A movie version of the book is reportedly in the works, to be written and directed by Peter Sarsgaard.

From The Best Book on How to Barefoot Run:
Barefooting has fascinated me for years. As a Personal Fitness Coach I’ve seen barefooting benefit many of my clients in a variety of ways. I believe strongly in the convergence of physical health and personal well-being. Balance is more important in today’s society than ever before. Barefooting brings the things I value into balance, and it can do the same for you.
We’ve put together a detailed training regimen with exercise sequences, YouTube instructional videos, running app recommendations, discussion forums, blogs, groups and everything to get you up and barefooting.
We’ve included a brief history of the shoe, why shoes aren’t the most appropriate in every situation and why that’s lead to barefooting. The exercises and stretches are designed to target and fill in muscle and tissue groups that may not have been used until now in the way they evolved. One of the great rewards will be to strengthen them into what they can be.
We wrote this so others don’t rush into barefooting and suffer injuries like we did. Take a moment (or the rest of your life) and benefit from our experiences and research.

From Guide to Marathon Training:
So, you want to run a marathon?
Everyone who makes the decision to run a marathon has their own reasons. Maybe you want to train for a particular race. Or maybe you want to lose weight. Or perhaps you just want to try a new form of exercise. Or, or, or…the list goes on and on.
If you are a beginner and you have made the lofty decision to train to run a marathon, then this is the guide for you. Are you a beginner? For this guide, if you cannot yet run for 30 minutes straight, you are a beginner. If you cannot run 30 minutes or cannot run for just 10 minutes, don’t worry, you will get there soon. This guide will also be helpful for people who are in shape but do not run. For instance, if you have been doing martial arts for years, consider yourself physically fit, and do not run, you can still benefit from this guide.
Running can have all sorts of benefits. One of the most common benefits is the possibility of weight loss. Combined with healthy eating, running is a great way to lose excess body fat.
