Real Endurance Runners

This video on what’s know as “the Persistence Hunt” blew me away. A group of hunters ran down an antelope to pure exhaustion during the hottest part of the day in the Kalahari Desert.
It’s interesting that humans were perhaps designed after all to become an endurance animal.
-Skin rather than fur to cool our bodies more quickly.
-Hands to carry primitive weapons and water.
-Toes that are far shorter than all other primates. This has been shown to be a big advantage – but only when running over distance

Really cool

    Remarkable film. The video window should be sized down to fit the blog screen. Good luck in Oklahoma City.

    That's is pretty cool. Have you heard of this guy David Goggins? Talk about motivation.
