How To Run: DOs & DON’Ts

Posted on 2013/01/25

Evolutionary biology professor Daniel Lieberman, whose studies are the scientific backbone for Chris McDougall’s BORN TO RUN, gives five pointers on how he thinks you can run long distances better and injury-free.

Lieberman believes the human body is more capable of running long distances than any other species on Earth (i.e. humans are born to run). A barefoot runner himself, he supports the benefits of running shoeless, so long as you learn how to run correctly.
