 If you've ever gone on a twilight run out in the wild, with a well trained free roaming dog you know there is something primal involved. At least for me, it's something I was designed to do.

Here is an excerpt from a Running Times article:

When Charles Darwin termed similar competitions a "survival of the fittest," he wasn't referring to vo2 max, lactate threshold, and running economy, the usual measures of a runner's ability. But in terms of human evolution, that's more or less what it amounts to, according to university professors Dennis Bramble and Daniel Lieberman. They believe that Running Made Us Human–that is, that early man's talent for endurance running led directly to our present, large-brained selves. That's the argument they made three years ago in a Nature magazine cover story, and it's a case they're still building.
