pat and christopher mcdougall ("not running") at harvard :D

i couldn't resist posting this photo of pat and chris mcdougall ("born to run: a hidden tribe, superathletes, and the greatest race the world has never seen") from the harvard reunion this afternoon. pat, in the middle of her 3+ day 25th reunion extravaganza, stopped in to see mcdougall's presentation at one of the friday symposia. mcdougall was part of a panel discussion on "the craft of personal writing."

i though "born to run" was a great read (for runners and non-runners alike). there is no small irony in this little twist - i met scott jurek last march (and got to run with him in central park), who figures prominently in the book; while pat met the author of the book himself (in a decidedly non-running environment) :D

if you haven't already, check out "born to run" - a must for runners of every stripe (or should that be of every speed and distance?).

So, so cool! Loved BTR. I interviewed him via phone a while back for my blog. He's a great, humble guy, not to mention an amazing writer!
