When their all-nighter comes to a close and a new day begins, Quentin goes to school and sees that Margo, who was an enigma for him, now turns into a mystery. The closer Quentin gets to uncovering the real face of Margo, the less he’s able to recognize the girl he loved and cherished.
Christopher McDougall’s “Born to Run”
In the savage terrain of North America lives the mysterious tribe of Tarahumara Indians who own the secret art. For hundreds of years, they have practiced methods that made them endure hundreds of miles running without a single minute of rest. And it’s not a competition – they know the secret of running and they enjoy every mile of it. Not only Tarahumara are great runners, but also they’re immune to strife and diseases. Through the guidance of Caballo Blanco, the author finds his own ultra-athlete within and faces his greatest challenge in life.
