Nice narration, beautiful story
The book is so inspirational and it is almost impossible to believe it is true. It feels like fiction! But it is not. I happened to start reading (actually listening on audible) some of the ultra runners book as a way to see how they are pushing their minds and body to achieve what they are doing. It is almost yogic in retrospect. I really wanted to give the print book as a gift to my 10 year old daughter only if it did not have all those Dusty's swear of F words. I really wish the author could have removed them and told __swear words__ here and leave it to readers imaginations.
The way mother - son love is portrayed, his vegan lifestyle, his surreal runs on all those Western States, Badwater, 24 hr runs. Ah it is incredible. I had to resist finish listening into the story and hold back to enjoy in 4 days. Otherwise I would have finished in one siting of 8 hours. I listened to all in my walks. It is sad his life had all these setbacks (no spoiler here) and how he overcame in late 2010. One of the most memorable memoirs I have ever read.
It was very touching.
I wish the F words were not present so that I can listen in as family.
