— Christopher McDougall
I am almost finished reading the book Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. I would highly recommend he. He basically makes the argument that we are, born to run. Some really sweet things I learned:
- Chia seeds are incredibly healthy. The greatest runners in the world, the Taramuhara have a drink called Izikiate made of mostly chia before going on hundred mile long run. They have more omegas then salmon, more antioxidants than blueberries, etc. etc.
3. Running shoes cause injuries. The more stabilizing and expensive a shoe the more injuries. People who buy shoes for less than $40 are much less likely to get injured. And this is taking into account mileage and all other factors.
4. We were created to run. So get on it!
