About this title:

Synopsis: Tudo comecou com uma simples pergunta: por que os meus pes doem?. Para responder, no entanto, o jornalista Christopher McDougall teve que passar pela maior aventura de sua vida, entre personagens inacreditaveis num dos lugares mais remotos e perigosos do mundo. McDougall, um fa de corridas ao ar livre sofria com constantes problemas ao se exercitar. Quando procurou um grande especialista em lesoes esportivas, ouviu o diagnostico definitivo: O corpo humano nao foi projetado para esse tipo de exagero. A partir dessa sentenca, que parecia um tanto contraditoria com a maioria das recomendacoes de saude, o autor passou a procurar na ciencia as respostas para a sua pergunta. No entanto, se quisesse uma solucao verdadeira nao poderia percorrer apenas laboratorios, mas teria que se embrenhar entre os desfiladeiros mais isolados do Mexico, onde vivem os indios Tarahumara, os maiores corredores de todos os tempos. E e neste ponto que a vida do jornalista se transforma para sempre.

Escrito numa linguagem agil e vibrante, caracteristica do melhor etilo jornalistico dos grandes reporteres de acao, Nascido para correr tem o vigor da grande aventura aliada a um questionamento profundo. Os indios nao parecem ser apenas imunes a dor e ao cansaco ao correr o equivalente a quatro vezes uma maratona nos piores terrenos e condicoes. Eles ainda compartilham de uma sociedade baseada na confianca mutua e nas trocas alegres com uma especie de cerveja local, num clima de estrema serenidade. Os maiores atletas sao tambem os mais pacificos e gentis, e aqueles que nunca se machucam na atividade... Dos laboratorios de Harvard as montanhas mais remotas, ate onde pode levar uma corrida?
