Because of it's low barrier to entry, all you need is a good pair of shoes and a trail, running is one of the most popular forms of exercise. However, while almost everyone CAN run, only an elite few will be able to push or break through the existing boundaries of human performance. 

On this episode of All About Fitness, runner and author Alex Hutchinson talks about his new book: Endure: Body, Mind and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance and how groups like the Nike Sports Science lab are look for various ways to shatter existing limits of what the human body can achieve. Alex shares his story of how he transitioned from an elite runner on the Canadian National Team to earning a PhD in physics to becoming the Sweat Science columnist for Outside Magazine; we talk about how he has used his scientific training along with his interest in human performance to help you understand how to get the best performance from your body.
