New Orleans Guy's Comments

I wish people would do some research before commenting. "Only superior to an inchworm." Really? Please.

This idea is taken from the book "Born to Run" by Christopher McDougall, which I just finished about a month ago. It was a great read, with a really in-depth look at the Tarahumara, a tribe of runners in Mexico's Copper Canyon. For anyone who is intrigued by this idea, McDougall makes a very convincing argument based on many, many sources.

Deer and other animals run quickly for short amounts of time, but humans can, and do, frequently run 100 miles or more in ultramarathons without stopping. Eventually that deer, tuckered out from constantly running away from a group of runners, will collapse to the ground. This hunting method is still used in parts of Africa.

The thing I hate most about blogs is how everyone thinks that their opinion, when completely unsupported by research, is a valid part of a discussion. It's not. It's actually irrelevant and obnoxious.
