While the event is exciting, it is also hazardous, and many runners have gotten badly injured over the years. As an inves- tor, you may find that running with the herd is dangerous to you, too - because if you're constantly following what everyone else is doing, your own finan- cial goals could end up getting "trampled." The urge to rtm with the herd, or follow the crowd, may have been hard-wired into our psyches, according to anthropologists.
