Can I really give up my running shoes?

One of my favorite books is Christopher McDougall's 'Born to Run'.  He details the running story of the Tarahumara Indians of the Copper Canyons in Mexico and how they seem born to run...without sophisticated footware.  But the best part of his book is how he postulates that human evolution in the early years was driven by our ability to out-run other animals.  We're not the fastest but we have the longest endurance.  Now, can I really give up my running shoes?

Until next time...
