Instead of finishing tonight (I am exhausted!), I came across this TED Talk (I love TEDTalks and use them all the time with my lessons) by Christopher McDougall (you know, the guy who wrote the hugely popular Born to Run). Give it a look see. It's long, but it's really interesting. Not only is it interesting, it also reminds me why:
1. Women are AWESOME at long distance running, particularly mothers.
2. Humans are meant to be compassionate and collaborative.
3. Running is FUN!
4. The running community is so supportive and nurturing of one another (while being competitive at the same time)
