Well, I'm not at all sure I was born to run. But, I can tell you the book Born to Run by Christopher McDougall is a good one. If you're a runner, you will like it period. If you are not a runner, the real story is about a nearly lost band of Mexican Indians called the Tarahumara.
It's a fun easy read that also calls into question today's "common" knowledge regarding shoe design.
Check it out and enjoy!
