Outside Article by a Clyde Poster

Last summer there was a thread on Sam Macdonald's memoir The Urban Hermit, a book detailing how the author turned his life around through weight loss. Mr. Macdonald joined the forum and contributed a couple posts to the discussion. In one he mentioned he was entering a trail run up the side of a mountain. Outside has Mr. Macdonald's entertaining account of his run up Hyner View:

After reading that piece, all I can think is "the guy should take up cycling instead."

great article ...

I'm supposed to run the Warrior Dash in late September, but haven't been running after twisting my ankle severely last month ...
