If You Love Running This Book is for You
Our book report on 'Running the Long Path'.
Running the Long Path, by Kenneth A. Posner (December 2016)
If you love the Hudson Valley’s woods, Kenneth Posner’s narrative on his 350-mile, nine-day, record-setting run along the Long Path (a hiking trail linking New York City to Albany) will enthrall you. His descriptions of the terrain, equipment, and overall experience encourage even the most casual hiker to suit up and join him. The book is peppered with quotes from poet Walt Whitman and Catskills naturalist John Burroughs, and is as much a love letter to the area as it is a field guide.
