"Pista de Atletismo includes a stretch of track that arcs up one side, creating a sharp little knoll for the type of grueling runs that can turn puny quads into steel."

Are We Born to Run?

TED recently published this endurance running talk by Born to Run author Christopher McDougall. The 15-minute lecture is packed with loads of cool facts on the history of running, and not all of it is prehistoric or barefoot-inspired. For example, did you know that women weren’t allowed to run in marathons before the 80s because organizers worried a woman running more than 26 miles would damage her uterus?

Lots of people jog for exercise. And as long as you’re going for a run, why not run an errand for someone who needs the help at the same time? That’s the idea behind The Good Gym, an organization that matches runners with less mobile people in their neighborhood who need groceries, other goods, or just some kindness and human contact. 
Runners commit to one run each week, and figure out a time that works for both parties—usually after work or on weekends. You can see a BBC report on The Good Gym here.
The Good Gym won first prize at the 2008 Social Innovation Camp. The idea was refined and tested over following years and is now up and running, so to speak, in the Tower Hamlets neighborhood of London. 
For the runners, it’s a way of combining volunteering with exercise (because who has enough time?) and a way to stay motivated. For the people they visit—many of whom are elderly and socially isolated—it provides essential human contact and an assurance that someone cares.
