I recently purchased Killian Jornet’s book RUN or DIE for a light holiday read while in Limone. In the book Killian delves into his Taloe Rim Trail 2 day record attempt, the Atlantic to Mediterranean Pyrenees crossing, his ‘Summits of my Life’ Kilimanjaro attempt, a few races (UTMB, Western States), and some of his inner thoughts about life and running.

The book is just short of 180 pages, so it’s a quick read. In truth I read it in 3 sittings. I wouldn’t let this detract from the content though, as Killian commentates his way through the various physical challenges, and for any trail/ultra/mountain runner who knows of Killian, you will take something from this book which may inspire you to greater achievements.

Personally I would have loved the book to go on for another 180 pages, but that content will likely appear in his next book! The Summits of my Life series could, and probably should, spawn another inspiring read.
