Description
What can animals teach us about running and life? Bernd Heinrich, who at 41 broke the North American record for the 100 kilometer distance race by 13 minutes, trained by observing how animals are built for stamina and speed. He developed his training program by examining animal physiology and behavior -- and came to the conclusion that imagination gives humans their winning edge in nature. Intertwined with his own personal odyssey with long-distance running, he explores the race as a metaphor for life, asking such evocative scientific questions as:
-- How do humans and other animals use their bodies to move over distance?
-- What unique yet shared features do humans and other animals exploit to maximize speed and endurance?

Lyrical, deeply revealing, fascinating yet rooted in science, Racing the Antelope is an original and creative work combining the rigors of science with the passion of running.
