Ik zie mezelf al ergens zitten, onder de sterrenhemel, hoofdlamp op, bergen om me heen, lezend in Run or die.
Hieronder lees je wat Amazon erover schrijft.

Kiss or kill. Go for glory or die trying. The struggle is what differentiates a victory, a winner.
An exceptional athlete. A hero. An extraordinary person. Kilian Jornet is a world champion ultra-runner, and before age 25 had conquered some of the toughest physical tests on the planet. He has gone up and down Kilimanjaro faster than any other human being, and struck down world records in every challenge that has been proposed.
Born and raised at 6,000 feet above sea level in the Spanish Pyrenees, Jornet climbed an 11,000 foot mountain — the highest mountain in the region — at age 5. His mother taught him skills to survive the high alpine environment, and today during races, he’s known to eat roots and plants and to drink water from snowmelt.
Jornet takes what the mountains give him. In winter, Jornet is a world champion ski mountaineer, running up snowy slopes and skiing down. In summer, he is the world’s fastest trail runner, obliterating world records and setting fastest known times on audacious high-alpine routes that defy death.
For Kilian Jornet, mountains offer a way of life. Run or Die is not just his story, but his philosophy.
