‘Born to Run’ Author Chris McDougall Reveals His Eye-Opening Gear Kit

by | Sep 9, 2019 | Gear

As most of you know, I really love author Chris McDougall’s writing, so much so that every race morning—even when it’s 3AM when I’m eating breakfast—I re-read certain passages from Born to Run. I’ve been lucky enough to interview Chris several times in the last year, first for our podcast and later for an article for Gear Junkie that I had so much fun writing.

Listen: Born to Run, Racing Donkeys & Building Community with Author & Badass Christopher McDougall on The Consummate Athlete Podcast

In the Gear Junkie piece, we got into what he’s wearing to run right now and what he can’t live without, from the perfect knife to a donkey racing harness. You may not need the donkey racing harness, but trust me, everything on the list is solid gold. He and I agree on one major article of clothing: a buff. Seriously, these things are so wonderfully multi-purpose. I have a ton of promotional ones, but I finally just bought a plain black and gray one because, you know, #healthgoth.
