You would be forgiven for not seeing modern humans as natural runners. We have moving walkways at malls and airports, elevators in our offices and apartments, all comforts designed to keep us from exertion. And yet, though we long ago exchanged brains for brawn, endurance running is as human as community or society, and perhaps an indirect progenitor of those other two.
Since my senior year of high school I’ve tried my best to incorporate healthy choices into my lifestyle. For the most part I’ve been pretty successful in implementing these practices as a permanent part of my daily routine. As a result, I’ve lost a fair amount of weight and everyone, ESPECIALLY mothers, tells me about it.
