TAKE A LOOK AT ANY SCHOOL PLAYGROUND, SEE ANYONE JOGGING?
Our guess is no. In fact, what you will see is running. Running to the swings. Running down the ice cream truck. Running to pick up a stick. But not jogging. That's because the act of jogging is a learned behavior. You see, somewhere between being told not to run in the halls and not to run with scissors, running morphed into a cautionary activity that's done at the speed of chit-chat. And real running became dangerous. So it should come as no surprise that the majority of people grow up to be joggers, while sadly only a few continue to run. Next time you lace up, take a cue from our tiny-tot brethren. Run like an animal.
