well i guess it's just me
my dad gave me this book , both of us being runners
i used to run cross country in HS
anyways i thought it was getting too boring about 1/4 of the way in, not developing fast enough - too much fucking character buildup.
So I skipped to a little farther than halfway and it started getting better.
I set it down about 3/4 of the way through, too bored to keep reading it.
I guess at some point i just got so uninterested i just didn't care how it ended with the ultimate race or whatever.
It might be the way the author writes... I just find it takes him too long to get any where likes its a high school book report - wordy, with a lot of unecessary info about the characters
the book itself starts to become the ultramarathon , just to get to the good shit.
