Oh, love Nicholas Kristof! I just started Deepak Chopra's The Book of Secrets.
This is the second time I've heard about Born to Run! I have to get it.
I'm thinking I will have to add Born to Run to the list, since I'm running my first marathon this fall. I just finished Water for Elephants, which I would highly recommend!
Loved "Born To Run"! Right now I'm reading "The Long Run" about Matt Long, a NYC fireman and tri-athlete who was hit by a bus while riding his bike. It's an incredible story of survival and how his high level of fitness really helped him survive. Not sure what I'll read next.
Born To Run is so great! Enjoy it :) I'll have to look up the other two books you're reading; I need some new material!
