Why We Run (from Bernd Heinrich)

A really great, unpretentious, look at why we run from Bernd Heinrich. His "Racing the Antelope: What Animals Can Teach Us about Running and Life" (later titled "Why We Run") book was just fantastic! You can definitely sense his passion for running. I love this guy.

Enjoy the video. Read his book ("Why We Run: A Natural History").

I have to give this book credit for getting me started running again. I found it at a garage sale and it looked interesting. It's a good book that got me to look into all things running, particularly from an evolutionary perspective.

I agree. The book is really interesting. Loved the evolutionary perspective and his testing of different ideas for running and nutrition/fueling.
