Moment of Awesomeness: 4/19/11

Many friends and athletes I know have read the book “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall. It discusses the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico’s Copper Canyons, a tribe that is known to run hundreds of miles at a time. Often. Yeah… their “record” is some guy running over 430 miles STRAIGHT in just over two days.

I bought the book a while ago, but have not read it yet (since it’s a few back on my queue). It’s definitely on the list, though! This morning, the amazing Katie “Harry” Harris posted this video link on her facebook wall, and I took the 10 minutes to watch their story.

Pretty incredible! Enjoy. (Thanks, Harry!)
