Lalita Babbar broke the national record at theAirtel Delhi Half Marathon by finishing it in1:10:52 around 6 minutes after her Indian Male counterpart. I wondered reading the news whether she could beat that time. That got me thinking on woman and long distance running, more so because of my recent read “Born to run” by Mr. Cristopher McDougall. I have time in hand , nursing my ankle injury ,so catching up on all the literature on running. On the point of Woman and Man and endurance running Christopher has an interesting part where he talks about the research done by Dr. Dennis Bramble on Mankind and history of running. In that context he quotes Dr. Bramble about woman and running.
