Episode 52 Hunter Beats Hobie and Life in the Day of a Runner

June 30, 2012Rope Mill Mountain ParkWoodstock, Georgia. If I see an ad on the right side of my facebook page for an obstacle race, odds are I am going to click on it to check it out. If I then find out it is less than an hour from my house, I will investigate even further. If I find a groupon (or in this case a coupsicle) where I can participate for $39.00, I...
