Removing the myth that running requires special exercises and equipment, author McDougall argues, running is at the heart of what it means to be human.

Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors come from Mexico and Latin America. The observation began in 1968 but became law in 1988. Mexico and six other Latin American countries celebrate their independence on or near September 15, hence the official dates of National Hispanic Heritage Month run from September 15 to October 15.
