Ten top books about running

At the Christian Science Monitor Ben Frederick tagged "10 books to get you excited about running now that spring is coming," including:
"Born to Run," by Christopher McDougall

Possibly the best book ever written on running, "Born to Run" is the story of a journalist's discovery of the Tarahumara, a tribe in Mexico that can reportedly run for hundreds of miles without injury. Former war correspondent and three-time National Magazine Award finalist Christopher McDougall combines the overarching narrative – a final showdown between the Tarahumara and the most elite ultra-runners in America – with meticulous biological and cultural research indicating that humans were indeed "Born to Run."
