'This man can run 100 miles. Up and down mountains. Without stopping. After skipping breakfast. Meet Kilian Jornet, the world's greatest ultra-runner' The Times
At 18 months he went on his first hike. At 3, he climbed his first mountain. At 10, he entered his first mountain race. At 26, he plans to run up Everest - without an oxygen mask.
Kilian Jornet has conquered some of the toughest physical tests on the planet. He has run up and down Mt. Kilimanjaro faster than any other human being, and struck down world records in every challenge that has been proposed - all before the age of 25. Dominating ultra marathons and races at altitude, he has redefined what is possible in running, astonishing competitors with his near-superhuman fitness and ability.
In Run or Die Kilian shares his passion, inviting readers into a fascinating world rich with the beauty of rugged trails and mountain vistas, the pulse-pounding drama of racing, and an intense love for sport and the landscapes that surround him. In turns inspiring, insightful, candid, and deeply personal, this is a book written from the heart of the world's greatest endurance runner, for whom life presents one simple choice: Run. Or die.
This is the next must-have read for those who enjoyed the endurance books Born to Run by Christopher McDougall and Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnazes.

Notă biografică

Kilian Jornet is a world champion ultrarunner and ski mountaineer from Catalonia, Spain. Born in 1987, he was raised in the shadow of the Spanish Pyrenees. By age 5 he had completed the ascent of Aneto, the Pyrenees’ highest peak. Among his many accomplishments in trail and ultra running, he is the four-time champion of Europe’s Skyrunner World Series, three-time champion of the grueling Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc, and 2011 winner of the world’s oldest 100-mile race, the Western States Endurance Run in California’s Sierra Nevada. He has set speed records on mountains across the globe, including Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. He is currently at work on a long-term project combining ski alpinism and running, called Summits of My Life, which will include speed-record attempts on the world’s greatest peaks, including Mount Aconcagua, Denali, and Mount Everest.
