running through the wall: neal jamison

running book reviews: "running through the wall: personal encounters with the ultramarathon" by neal jamison

i really enjoyed this book. the content really inflamed a greater desire in my heart for participation in ultra events. the content introduced me to a race that i was not aware of. the event is called the barkley marathons and involves attempting to cover a 100 miles in under 60 hours through the brush and elevation of tennessee wilderness. whereas i have no desire to participate in the badwater 135, i do find myself attracted to the barkley.

alot of the stories in this book reference david horton. i was suprised to find out that he is a professor at liberty university. i look forward to reading and watching more about him in the near future.
