I like more heroic-stories, while listening and during my long runs. This wasn't bad, but same time I wasn't too inspired-nor interested of whole subject. Chris McDougall's Born to Run superior many ways. Bottom line: there isn't any Kenyan-secrets to find out - so why bother to read this.
I listened to the story several times- a few chapters over and over. I loved the race prep and the visual impression of the villages.
It hit on my favorite topics; travel, adventure, running, family and wild animals. What could be better?!!
The scene on NY eve at the game preserve.... lions think of a tent no differently than a rock...
Fast & curious
Running with Kenyans was just a bit too slow for me, nothing grabbed me.
It seems like a nice story and I feel a little sad saying I really didn't love it.
