Críticas:

Advance praise for "Running with the Kenyans"
" "
"Completely satisfying, as well-paced and exhilarating as a good run."--"The Boston Globe"
"Not everyone gets to heaven in their lifetime. Adharanand Finn tried to run there, and succeeded. "Running with the Kenyans" is a great read."--Bernd Heinrich, author of "Why We Run"
"Part scientific study, travel memoir, and tale of self-discovery, Finn's journey makes for a smart and entertaining read."--"Publishers Weekly"
"A hymn to the spirit, to the heartbreaking beauty of tenacity, to the joy of movement.""--The Plain Dealer"
"Equal parts cultural examination, cult-of-running treatise, and poignant memoir, "Running with the Kenyans "thrives on a variety of levels. Like the skilled distance runner he is, Finn paces this book marvelously and then saves the best for the final kick. This book packs all the pleasure and satisfaction--and none of the ancillary pain--of a long training run."--L. Jon Wertheim, senior editor, "Sports Illustrated, "and co-author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Scorecasting"
"Not everyone gets to heaven in their lifetime. Finn tried to run there, and succeeded. "Running with the Kenyans" is a great read."--Bernd Heinrich, author of "Why We Run"

"If you want to know the secrets of Kenyan runners, and have a rollicking adventure along the way, join Finn in his fascinating tale of what it is to go stride for stride with the fastest people on Earth."--Neal Bascomb, author of "The Perfect Mile"

In the tradition of the best sports writing, Finn embedded himself fully in his subject and reveals, for the first time, just how close we are to the holy grail of the sub-two-hour marathon."--Robin Harvie, author of "The Lure of Long Distances"

Sunday Times Sports Book of the Year

Shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award

Winner - Best New Writer category at the British Sports Book Awards

After years of watching Kenyan athletes win the world's biggest long-distance races, Runner's World contributor Adharanand Finn set out to discover what it was that made them so fast - and to see if he could keep up. Packing up his family, he moved to Iten, Kenya, the running capital of the world, and started investigating. Was it running barefoot to school, the food, the altitude, or something else? At the end of his journey he put his research to the test by running his first marathon, across the Kenyan plains.

This edition includes a new chapter covering the 2012 Olympics.
