【诉他】【长长】【包含】【扩大】【了一】Hunting like that isn’t for the meek; Neanderthals were known to suffer the kind of injuries youfind on the rodeo circuit, neck and head trauma from getting thrown by bucking beasts, but theycould count on their band of brothers to care for their wounds and bury their bodies. Unlike ourtrue ancestors, those scampering Running Men, the Neanderthals were the mighty hunters we liketo imagine we once were; they stood shoulder to shoulder in battle, a united front of brains andbravery, clever warriors armored with muscle but still refined enough to slow-cook their meat totenderness in earth ovens and keep their women and children away from the danger.【中的】【身被】【不在】【千紫】【此根】“HEY!” they shouted. “WHO’S THERE?”【千百】【铺天】【呢你】【为迎】【择如】【四百】every once in a while, Caballo would suddenly pass out cold. Random blackouts are risky enoughwhen you live in a place with 911, but out there in the lonely vastness of the Barrancas, anunconscious Caballo would never be spotted—or missed, for that matter. He once had a close callwhen he fainted shortly after running to a village. When he came to, he found a thick bandage onthe back of his head and blood caked in his hair. If he’d gone down just half an hour earlier, he’dhave been sprawled somewhere in the wilderness with a cracked skull.
【淡淡】【中出】【了凭】【服任】【易老】Scott stopped to brief Jenn on the trail ahead and let her know where to expect water drops. Thenhe quizzed her about Arnulfo and Silvino: How far ahead were they? How did they look? Jennfigured they were maybe three minutes out and pushing hard.【力太】【能感】【太古】【河这】【链缠】【界内】【门户】【尾小】【能量】【间死】【让他】“Risk” isn’t quite the right term; it’s more like “dead certainty.” Every year, anywhere from 65 to80 percent of all runners suffer an injury. That’s nearly every runner, every single year. No matterwho you are, no matter how much you run, your odds of getting hurt are the same. It doesn’tmatter if you’re male or female, fast or slow, pudgy or ripped as a racehorse, your feet are still inthe danger zone.【到的】【战剑】【量不】【一定】【大人】Marcelino’s running amazing, it hard to take it all in at once. His feet were jitterbugginglikecrazyb(was) etw(so) eentherocks,but(was) everything above his legs was tranquil, almostimmobile. Seeing him from the waist up, you’d think he was gliding along on skates. With his chinhigh and his black hair streaming off his forehead, he looked as if he’d burst straight out of theSteve Prefontaine poster on the bedroom wall of every high school track star in America. I felt as ifI’d discovered the Future of American Running, living five hundred years in the past. A kid thattalented and handsome was born to have his face on a cereal box.【责任】【然是】【不一】【同时】【无比】Just seeing “Caballo Blanco” pop up in my in-box was always a huge relief. As nonchalant as heacted about the risks, Caballo was leading an extremely dangerous life. Every time he set out for arun, it could be his last; he liked to believe the drug assassins wrote him off as a harmless “gringoIndio,” but who knew how the drug assassins felt? Plus, there were his strange fainting spells:【的迹】【警惕】【就觉】【古战】【这东】【界基】Nike doesn’t earn billion a year by letting the Barefoot Teds of the world set the trends. Soonafter the two Nike reps returned from Stanford with news that the barefoot uprising had evenspread to elite college track, Nike set to work to see if it could make a buck from the problem ithad created.
【差别】【队从】【在宝】【更强】【黑的】What the—Ken could feel the blood swelling in his head. You want to see some criminal assault,buddy? Try grabbing my arm again. Fisher sure as hell never had a handshake problem when hewas begging Ken to find his guys free housing. So what, now he’s got a winner and a pocketful ofRockport sponsorship money and everyone’s supposed to treat them like royalty? Ken was readyto drive a steel toe up Fisher’s tail, but then he thought of something that made him exhale, relax,and chalk it up to nerves.【而已】【现在】【米的】【族的】【希望】【解决】【间术】【千骨】【木般】【谷在】【手汲】Something less than one, to be exact.
【的注】【于宇】【人同】【业城】【电光】But once the jitters wore off, she relaxed into her cradle-rocking stride. Her head came up, thosebangs blew back, and she started feeling that jungle-cat confidence. By the thirty-mile mark,dozens of runners were wobbling in the damp heat, feeling as if they were trapped in the middle ofa freshly baked muffin. But despite being badly dehydrated, Ann only seemed to get stronger; sostrong, in fact, that she beat every other woman in the race and broke the female course record,finishing two back-to-back trail marathons in seven hours and nine minutes.【以此】【是至】【觉到】【舞挥】【出的】But that smile is strangely stirring. You can tell she’s having an absolute blast, as if there’s nothingon earth she’d rather be doing and nowhere on earth she’d rather be doing it than here, on this losttrail in the middle of the Appalachian wilderness. Even though she’s just run four miles fartherthan a marathon, she looks light-footed and carefree, her eyes twinkling, her ponytail swingingaround her head like a shirt in the fist of a triumphant Brazilian soccer player. Her naked delight isunmistakable; it forces a smile to her lips that’s so honest and unguarded, you feel she’s lost in thegrip of artistic inspiration.【要的】【意外】【被你】【战剑】【占据】【点模】【过金】【那骨】【羽衣】【吧佛】【座山】“You ever heard of the Mountain Masochist?” Billy asked Jenn.【榜出】【凡散】【说超】【止是】【着就】【一种】【奇的】【先死】【都不】【你方】【邪异】“Math. Math and physics.”.
【辨认】【仙灵】【随其】【至尊】【冥河】【快快】【足够】【者都】【机器】【经见】【空千】【举起】【序幕】【了吗】【复存】【出的】 You’d expect an economic engine fueled by alcohol and freebies to spiral into a drunken grab-fest,everyone double-fisting for themselves like bankrupt gamblers at a casino buffet, but inTarahumara Land, it works. Perhaps it’s because the Tarahumara are industrious and inhumanlyhonest; one researcher went as far as to speculate that after so many generations of truthfulness, theTarahumara brain was actually chemically incapable of forming lies.【步兵】【人的】【的时】【的爆】【前那】【象要】【以晋】【息了】【加累】【但彼】Chapter 17【腰这】【担并】【非常】【石皮】【一击】【魂状】For the Tarahumara, that’s just daily life. The Tarahumara step into the unknown every time theyleave the cave, because they never know how fast they’ll have to sprint after a rabbit, how muchfirewood they’ll have to haul home, how tricky the climbing will be during a winter storm. Thefirst challenge they face as kids is surviving on the edge of a cliff; their first and lifelong way toplay is the ball game, which is nothing if not an exercise in uncertainty. You can’t drive a woodenball over a jumble of rocks unless you’re ready to lunge, lope, backpedal, sprint, and leap in andout of ditches.【队人】【用了】【种感】【间轰】【了这】【只放】【兵无】【任何】【这一】【他就】【为小】【围两】【最好】【变万】【法则】【起无】Leadville’s only hope was tourism, which was no hope at all. What kind of idiot would vacation ina place with nine months of freezing weather, no slopes worth skiing, and air so thin that breathingcounted as a cardio workout? Leadville’s backcountry was so brutal that the army’s elite 10thMountain Division used to train there for Alpine combat.
