Born to Run
[Hat tip on the video to Conditioning Research.]
Last week I finished Born to Run , by Christopher McDougall – one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. It appealed to me on a number of levels – as a runner/former-runner and someone who loves a good adventure, travel story.
One aspect of the book – barefoot running, and the basic anti-running shoe company message – has attracted lots of attention. This short piece from CNN is a nice introduction to the book and some of its highlights.
Just watching this video made me want to take off my shoes and run - except for the snow. Hmmmm.
