Born to Run
By Christopher Mcdougall
The Books starts with the question, why does my foot hurt? After no answer Christopher sets out to find the answer. In the process he releases that the issue was his running shoes and that it is healthier to run bare foot. He saids that after all this time of evolution our feet are made to run and not with shoes. "Just Move your legs. Because if you don't think you were born to run, you're only denying history. You're denying who you are." (McDougall)
In born to run the author brings up the idea that we are "Born to Run". Meaning that as a species running is what comes naturally. We are the only animal who sweats, therefore able to cool ourselves off and run much father distances. Christopher comes to the conclusion that we are a herd animal and that in order to survival we had to chase down and tried out our prey.
