Running with the Kenyans

REVIEW å LABMEDNEWS.XYZ Ò Adharanand Finn DOWNLOAD ↠ Running with the Kenyans “Completely satisfying as well paced and exhilarating as a good run” The Boston Globe   As a boy Adharanand Finn was a natural runner imagining he was one of his heroes the Kenyan long distance runners exploding into prominence as Olympic and world champions But those childhood dreams slipped away until suddenly in his mid thirties Finn saw and seized an opportunity to learn the secrets of the fastest runners on earth Uprooting his family of five Finn traveled to a small chaotic town in the Rift Valley province of Kenya. Finn uproots his extremely supportive wife and kids from their home in England and moves to Kenya towell it s not totally clear He wants to see if he can run better even starting in midlife And at least nominally he wants to learn what makes Kenyans such good runners So he goes to live in Kenya for a few months and runs with some KenyansAnd that s or less my issue with the book insofar as I have an issue It isn t that Finn doesn t acknowledge his privilege He does sort of He seems full of admiration for the Kenyans he trains with and befriends Most are from poor rural backgrounds and he sees the hardship and privation they endure There may not be much that he as an individual can do about that But it s a little weird to read a book that dwells in the middle of this kind of ineuity and poverty without ever uestioning the larger structures behind it Finn s not interested in those things or at least not writing about them here This is a book about running But really can you write a book about how hardship makes good runners without uestioning at least a little the systems that perpetuate the hardshipSo this is complicated I was interested in Finn s story in the way that runners are forever interested in the minutiae of running A non runner would probably die of boredom or not pick this book up in the first place It is what it says on the tin But over the course of the whole book I started to feel like the book s point of view was so narrow its focus so unrelentingly on Finn and his situation his training his family his experiences even his car and meals and muscle twinges that it read like a diary than anything else I just finished reading The Blue Sweater which is Jacueline Novogratz s story of struggling to establish microfinance operations in developing countries I think Novogratz is kind of a standout case but her take on people living in poverty is just so different from Finn s Finn in describing the home of a house proud Kenyan runner points out the shabbiness and odd placement of the furniture He s too experienced a journalist to pass comment but this is what he sees and what he chooses to report Novogratz never once describes the people she works with in any way that undermines them or points out the gap between their material ambitions and the things we take for granted in the West Over and over she comments on people s appearances clothes personal mannerisms and everything she says feels sincerely appreciative She s not a Pollyanna she reports being robbed and in one horrible incident almost abducted but she seems simply to have a talent for seeing people in their own terms instead of applying her own I don t get the impression Finn shares that talent And since he s imposed himself on these people s lives for his own sake and for relatively trivial reasons it all feels just a bit icky to meIt s especially strange that after the final marathon race at Lewa the event the whole book builds up to the focus closes in on Finn s own difficult race experience and pretty much forgoes everything else There s no philosophizing about the Kenyan secret to running which is a pretty thin thread in the book to start with It s just a journal of Finn s marathon Followed by a startlingly abrupt ending in which his Kenyan running partners all leave in a van and he muses that he may never see any of them againOh there s an epilogue It s Finn triumphantly setting a PR at the NYC marathon So I guess we know what the book was really about after all 性食鬼 1 just finished reading The Blue Sweater which is Jacueline
