Are We Really Born To Run?

The popular book says so, but maybe we’ve evolved yet again.

There hasn’t been a single book that has inspired me more on my running journey than Christopher McDougall’s Born To Run. Combining anthropological science, historical recaps of incredible running feats, the biomechanics of how we run, all against a secret race pitting America’s top ultramarathon runners against the ancient Tarahumara Indian ultrarunners in Mexico, this book seems to have it all for those interested in going the distance.
