At face value, running seems deceptively simple. Just put one foot in front of the other—anyone can do it, right? Well, yes and no. In a survival scenario, you may have to run long distances without becoming exhausted, or sprint short distances without injuring yourself. Therefore, knowing and practicing proper running form is a wise choice.

In this video, we hear five running tips from Daniel Lieberman, a Harvard biology professor whose studies formed the foundation for best-selling book Born to Run. Even if you have no prior running experience, these tips are easy to understand and implement. If you ever need to literally run for your life, you’d better hope you have good form.

Professor Lieberman makes a good point: running properly is not an overnight process. It takes practice, so get out there and give it a shot!
