Video: Are We Born to Run?

Feb 14, 2011
Outside Magazine

TED recently published this endurance running talk by Born to Run author Christopher McDougall. The 15-minute lecture is packed with loads of cool facts on the history of running, and not all of it is prehistoric or barefoot-inspired. For example, did you know that women weren't allowed to run in marathons before the 80s because organizers worried a woman running more than 26 miles would damage her uterus?
