we are animals. period.
We are bringing you an amazing episode this week. John, Luke and Tex speak with author of the widely popular book titled Born to Run. Chris McDougall is no stranger to the big man struggle. Standing at 6’4 and well over 200 lbs, he was not what one would consider a naturally adept long distance runner. However, Chris’ research on the subject led this lifelong athlete to ask the question? If others his size had been doing it out of necessity for thousands of years, why NOT him?
Ultimately, these questions led to the publication of Born to Run and his latest book, Natural Born Heroes. This episode is a meaty conversation full of Chris’ historical research and fascinating observations of cultural, social, and psychosocial connections to the act of athletic performance under stress.
Chris McDougall is passionate about unraveling the why’s of human performance. Hear his take on where we came from and where he thinks our culture is headed…and why he no longer watches organized sports on TV. His reasoning for this is searingly true and inspiring.
EMPOWER YOUR PERFORMANCE.
It’s time to break a mental sweat. Head to http://www.chrismcdougall.com/ for more information about his research, philosophy, and to get your copy of not only Born to Run, but Chris’ latest book, Natural Born Heroes.
Again, a special thank you to Chris McDougall for joining us on the show. He’s kind of a big deal and we were humbled to have him.
