Friday Inspiration – Heinrich on Why We Run

It is fair to say that I’m obsessed with Bernd Heinrich. I found his book Why We Run: A Natural History to be both rigorous and moving and his lifetime commitment to running to be inspiring.

Heinrich is going to be a presence on this blog for a while to come, so get used to it and check out this awesome video Salomon Running did about him. Maybe it’s the lack of sleep, but this video almost moved me to tears.
