I am reading Dean Karnazes' book, Ultra Marathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner. If you're a runner, and a reader, I highly recommend this book. If you've read Born to Run by Christopher McDougall, you'll enjoy this one. It's an easy read and while it's not about barefoot running (neither is Born to Run, by the way), it's inspiring in more than one way. You'll have to read it to find out more.
I'm about halfway through the book after starting it at 3:30PM today (it's now 8:00 and I took time off to eat, get in a half-hour workout, and play with the kids some). It makes me want to go out and run...which unfortunately I cannot do at the moment.
The story is easy to follow, well-written, and inspiring. Trust me.
