Have you ever heard of Burro Racing? We hadn't either until we read Christopher McDougall's new book, Running with Sherman. In this book Chris shares his story of how he ended up adopting a sick rescue donkey who ended up with the name Sherman, and then training to run a race with him. 

Reminiscent of Chris' well known book, Born to Run, Running with Sherman is also peppered with interesting facts and side stories about the people he meets. Among other things, we learn why and how humans started bonding with animals, and how this relationship is essential to our wellbeing.  We had the pleasure of interviewing Chris, and talking about some of the people that helped him in his journey to get Sherman healthy and ready to run the burro racing World Championships.

Thanks to Vintage Books for providing us an advance review copy, and also putting us in contact with the author for the interview.  

If you would like get a copy of this book, and see a short video about the book, take a look at Chris McDougall's website https://www.chrismcdougall.com/running-with-sherman/
