Since Christopher McDougall released Born To Run in 2009, the story of Caballo Blanco and "The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen" has become a running culture staple, introducing thousands of runners to the world of ultra and building the case that our bodies are biologically designed to hit the trails. 13 years later, Chris has again teamed up with Eric Orton, the coach that took him from a busted up runner to toeing the line at a 50 mile ultra in Mexico's Copper Canyons, and together they have released Born To Run 2: The Ultimate Training Guide. We sat down with Chris and Eric to talk about the book, tactical training tips, and what you can do today to quickly improve your form and add more joy to your running. Be sure to give them both a follow on Instagram ( www.instagram.com/chrismcdougallauthor and www.instagram.com/borntoruncoach ) and YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/@borntorunworld165 and https://www.youtube.com/@BornToRunCoach ) and check out https://borntorun.world/ for all the book info. Born To Run 2 is available for preorder and the official released date is 12/6/2022. Enjoy the episode!
