Run: Christopher McDougall talks at TED

Isn't it great that TED has been sharing their timely, inspirational and always compelling conference talks with us these past few years?

Just posted, this June 2010 presentation will interest runners.

Born to Run author "Christopher McDougall 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? At TEDxPennQuarter, 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."

What's funny about this craze is that my ortho doc recommended (after I had hip pain following my runs for the 2nd half of last year) I get a running shoe w/greater control + stability because I over-pronate.

I haven't read Born to Run, so I'm not sure what McDougall has to say about this; but, ever since getting my Brooks Ariels, no hip pain.

Cheers, Richard!
