“Running should be free, man.” ~ Caballo Blanco
The comments of notable persons in the running world from the book jacket sparked my interest to initially read the first chapter. However, I found myself turning from one page to another until I am almost half way through it. I’m hooked on the story!
The author wrote it like a spellbinding novel, made the characters come alive as if you’re a spectator of the greatest race ever run, and it’s written with a lot of humor in it.
Not only a must read but also a must-have book for those who are interested to know more about running, ultramarathon, its history, and the role of science and technology in running.
