They hiked and ran every day with their dogs over desert-like terrain. It seemed to really make them happy. Their heritage, where they came from made them great runners.
i think this is good to highlight. they CAN run all day and not many people will be able to run longer that them, but they dont NEED to. they like hanging aroud being lazy.
