Born To Run

Is the title of a book I’m reading. I got the book because it talked about the Tarahumara Indians of the Copper Canyon in Mexico and we visited the Copper Canyon about a year ago. So I thought it’d be about exploring the canyons down there. And there is some of that. But it’s really about how humans are evolutionarily designed to run.

And, here was a shock - we are better off running without expensive, arch-supporting shoes. Lots of empirical studies he mentions in his book back that statement up.

A quote from the book I like: “Make friends with pain and you will never be alone.” (Ouch, that hurts.)
