The ESP TipCast covers quick tips for the latest health, fitness, nutrition and training science. On this TipCast we discuss the recent paper by David Raichlen and collegues titled Wired to run: exercise-induced endocannabinoid signaling in humans and cursorial mammals with implications for the "runner's high". The authors propose evidence supporting the idea that the runners high encourages humans and other run loving species to run in good times and in bad, lending support to the idea that we really were born to run.
We also want to remind everyone that our final Stan's No Tubes Clinic will be on October 7th at the Richmond Festival of Cross. We'll be covering tubeless tire installation, tire sealant use and show casing a range great products from Honey Stinger and Gu Brew. And finally, be sure to checkout our next podcast where we review the New Balance 1600 and discuss the potential risk that extreme endurance exercise may have on the heart with cardiac specialist, Mark Milunski.
