Running is a popular physical activity, sport and workout across the globe. Research work on fossils implies that running is an innate human quality.
And, the human anatomy is proof that we are by nature, good runners. The way our physique has evolved and has good endurance level tells us that our ancestors were quite familiar with running. They were great hunters, constantly in movement and search of food, especially meat, to fill the nutritional void.
Running has been around for quite a long time. Around the 19th century, there were fewer gyms to exercise in, and they weren’t cheap either.
So, running outdoors became a thing. Then slowly came marathons, track and field, endurance running, and a few more types evolved.
