Upon visiting Christopher McDougall's blog today, I see he has posted one of his recent lectures; this one via TEDxPhoenixville. I thought I would share it, as he again speaks about barefoot running, but also about having fun while doing so. To me, that was one of the main reasons I began the whole barefoot thing; to make running and being healthy enjoyable again. But this lesson does not simply apply to running, I feel it can also be extended and updated to fit into our modern lifestyles. I think it would be a mistake to forget how we arrived here at the present.
I agree, as McDougall points out, that we should all:
:have more connection with the Earth on a daily basis.
:live in the realm of pleasure, instead of fear.
:remember our childhood more often...and practice fun.
