Running in Sandals

Here's an interesting article from the New York Times, suggesting that human bodies are made for long-distance running and that high-tech shoes could be causing injuries by encouraging bad running form. One interesting comment was that our bodies are made for running down large prey over long distances -- for instance, on a hot day, a human can outrun a horse over 26 miles. Based on the book 'Born to Run' by Christopher McDougal.
