Christopher McDougall: Are we born to run? | TED.com TV

TED Talks Christopher McDougall explores the mysteries of the human desire to run. How did running help early humans survive -- and what urges from our ancient ancestors spur us on today?

 

Quote “If you read folklore and mythology, any kind of myths, any kind of tall tales, running is always associated with freedom and vitality and youthfulness and eternal vigor. It’s only in our lifetime that running has become associated with fear and pain.”

 

Quote “We are the biggest sissies in the jungle. Every other animal is stronger than we are — they have fangs, they have claws, they have nimbleness, they have speed. We think Usain Bolt is fast — Usain Bolt can get his ass kicked by a squirrel.”

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running -- Quotes By Haruki Murakami

What I Talk About When I Talk About Running -- Quotes By Haruki Murakami | fun2run | Scoop.it

"People sometimes sneer at those who run every day, claiming they'll go to any length to live longer. But don't think that's the reason most people run. Most runners run not because they want to live longer, but because they want to live life to the fullest. If you're going to while away the years, it's far better to live them with clear goals and fully alive then in a fog, and I believe running helps you to do that. Exerting yourself to the fullest within your individual limits: that's the essence of running, and a metaphor for life — and for me, for writing as whole. I believe many runners would agree." -- Haruki Murakami

 

“The thoughts that occur to me while I’m running are like clouds in the sky. Clouds of all different sizes. They come and they go, while the sky remains the same sky always. The clouds are mere guests in the sky that pass away and vanish, leaving behind the sky.” -- Haruki Murakami

 

"Dreams come from the past, not from the future. Dreams shouldn't control you--you should control them." -- Haruki Murakami

"Don't feel sorry for yourself. Only assholes do that." -- Haruki Murakami

Marathon Man, Amerikaanse bioloog Bernd Heinrich

Marathon Man, Amerikaanse bioloog Bernd Heinrich | fun2run | Scoop.it

Van de Amerikaanse bioloog Bernd Heinrich verscheen in 2001 het boek 'Racing the Antilope'. Heinrich beschrijft daarin wat dieren ons kunnen leren over hardlopen. Noorderlicht portretteert de van oorsprong Duitse bioloog die een passie heeft voor biologie en het lopen van lange afstanden.

Bernd Heinrich is hoogleraar biologie aan de Universiteit van Vermont in Burlington. Hij schreef een reeks populair-wetenschappelijke boeken - zoals Mind of the Raven, Bumblebee Economics, The Trees in my Forest - die vaak lyrisch werden ontvangen: 'Heinrich is een groots verhalenverteller', 'een van de origineelste biologen op aarde', en 'een onderzoeker van wereldklasse en begenadigd schrijver'.
