I am reading this book right now: Born to Run, by Christopher McDougall. It is about the Tarahumara Indians down in Mexico and natural off road distance running/adventure. It's an excellent, entertaining book. Check it out.

I read the first several chapters and really enjoyed it, but it got a little stale after a while. Should I go back and pick it up again? I liked it at the begining but it just seemed to go on forever without any real information for a while and I gave up.

I gave up on any kind of real running info from the book in the beginning. I just liked all the stories he was telling. I have been in endurance sports for 20 years and I remember when alot of these things happened. It's worth finishing. Towards the end, some American Ultra runners go down to race against the Tarahumara in Copper Canyon, Mexico and it's pretty cool. Good luck.
