Running like a Tarahumara

Quite often Google Talks invites interesting people to talk about books they've written. This guy wrote a book called Born to Run about a group of Mexican Indians who can run for hundreds of miles just for the fun of it. Here is the link to his talk at google. I've personally never cared for distance running very much, although I remember liking it briefly in middle school. But this dude has actually made me think about giving it a try again. The island I live on has beautiful mountain and ocean scenery so I really have no excuses. I also like his anti-hightech gear philosophy. Apparently barefoot running is the way to go.
