Born to Run
Born to Run A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen By McDougall, Christopher Book - 2009

Sample of quotes collected:
Some said Caballo Blanco was a fugitive; others heard he was a boxer who’d run off to punish himself after beating a man to death in the ring. No one knew his name, or age, or where he was from. He was like some Old West gunslinger whose only traces were tall tales and a whiff of cigarillo smoke.

I’d be startled to discover that the ancient saying of the Tao Te Ching—“ The best runner leaves no tracks” ... in January 2001 I asked my doctor this: “How come my foot hurts?”
===
Up to eight out of every ten runners are hurt every year. It doesn’t matter if you’re heavy or thin, speedy or slow, a marathon champ or a weekend huffer, you’re just as likely as the other guy to savage your knees, shins, hamstrings, hips, or heels. Next time you line up for a Turkey Trot, look at the runners on your right and left: statistically, only one of you will be back for the Jingle Bell Jog.
