Are we born to run? Christopher McDougall is the author of  “Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.” He explores the mysteries of the human desire to run. How did running help early humans survive — and what urges from our ancient ancestors spur us on today? McDougall tells the story of the marathoner with a heart of gold, the unlikely ultra-runner, and the hidden tribe in Mexico that runs to live. Vid includes a quick shout out to local ultrarunner Nikki Kimball.  QOTD “64 year old men and women are now running as fast as they were at age 19!”
