Mastering the race

Nature reports that apparently humans are the shape they are because they're good at long distance running. Don't know what happened to me.

Yeah, I thought this was really interesting, and it makes intuitive sense I think (like, when you've been in training you can jog for a suprising distance without too much effort). Was the running thing before or after we were aquatic apes though??
