The Badwater Ultramarathon through California's Death Valley is one of the world's toughest races. Lisa Tamati was the first New Zealand woman to compete in the race alongside such legends of the sport as Dean Karnazes and David Goggins. But Lisa's story is so much more than that one race. At the age of 19 she suffered a crippling back injury and was told she should give up running. She took that as a challenge and, with her Austrian boyfriend, went on to run, walk, bike, and paddle her way across thousands of miles of Europe, Scandinavia, and Africa before taking on the ultimate challenge—an unassisted crossing of the Libyan Desert. What happened in that desert would change the course of Lisa's life and instill in her a love of desert running. Running Hot is a story of a life lived to the max—a story of challenges, setbacks, heartbreaks, and triumph.

One of the reasons why I bought this book was because everything I was reading about ultrarunning was from the US. Lisa Tamati is a New Zealander and I'm and Aussie, and it's easier to identify with her because of the close relationship our countries, and cultures, have. Irrespective of this connection, I wasn't disappointed in this book.

Lisa's story is honest, engaging, inspirational. I found it hard to put the book down, voraciously wanting to learn whatever I could about what led her to ultrarunning, what traits and experiences and values and opportunities came together to produce the accomplished endurance athlete that she is. Even better, she does this without the false modesty that distractingly comes across in other ultrarunners' stories.

This has been one of the most influential books inspiring my own dreams about becoming an ultrarunner.

It was difficult getting through this book and for awhile I couldn't figure out why. It then occurred to me that it simply was not inspiring in any way. The writing is flat and really doesn't do justice to the accomplishments. After reading Jurek, Roll, Karnes etc I was hoping for more but with a female perspective, this wasn't it.

I really enjoyed this book, I thought it was written well..She's no novelist so don't expect that! What it gives is a good run down of her experiences which are gutsy if anything. She put up with much more personally than I think any normal person would in her personal life. Those experiences however have served her favourably however it seems in being able to push through whatever the situation and survive. A life well lived by the looks, going to download the newest release for a read as I found this one so inspirational!
