Running After Antelope

This is primarily one for the paleo-runners our there, but even for the non-runners, there is some beautiful prose here (fast forward to about the six minute mark; it runs until about the 50 minute mark), courtesy of This American Life
  • Stories of people engaged in a battle with nature — a battle they don't stand much chance of winning. Most of the show is Scott Carrier's story of trying for twelve years to chase down and catch an antelope by foot.

Scott reveals "I am trying to get in shape and I'm trying to live like a primitive man."  We hear plenty about the Tarahumara, evolution and persistence hunting.

Spare 45 minutes of your life to listen to 'Running After Antelope'.  A beautiful story.  Seriously good radio.
