Friday, our guest is journalist Christopher McDougall who wrote the book that kicked off the barefoot running movement. While he was writing, McDougall came across the story of a Greek foot messenger who accomplished remarkable athletic feats during World War II. It got him thinking about what makes a hero, and he learned it’s not chance and you don’t have to be superhuman. McDougall joins us to explore how normal people can develop their natural skills to be ready in a crisis. [Rebroadcast]
Christopher McDougall is the author of Born to Run [Indiebound|Amazon] and his latest Natural Born Heroes: How a Daring Band of Misfits Mastered the Lost Secrets of Strength and Endurance [Indiebound|Amazon].
