Christopher McDougall:
Are we born to run?

TEDxPennQuarter · 15:52 · Filmed Jul 2010

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? 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.
