Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance
The capacity to endure, from 5K to 240 miles to a relationship is an elusive skill that we search for. Runner and journalist, Alex Hutchinson, exposes us to research that has been done in recent years that will change the paradigm you may have about endurance. He explores the relationship of the mental and the physical and what we have learned from scientists on how we can maximize our potential.

Chapter 1: The Unforgiving Minute
