The “one best way”

We were once the greatest endurance runners on earth. We didn’t have fangs, claws, strength or speed, but the springiness of our legs and our unrivaled ability to cool our bodies by sweating rather than panting enabled humans to chase prey until it dropped from heat exhaustion. Some speculate that collaboration on such hunts led to language, then shared technology.

If there’s any skeptics out there, I’ll just throw out my give away line whenever I get gasps for wearing foot gloves instead of “running shoes”. Humans have run without Nikes for hundreds of thousands of years.

Hit the bottom for my secondary argument. Ages are in Orange.
