What happens when runner’s high meets mountain high? You get Russian-American adventure runner Michael Langer‘s most recent holiday. No longer able to play football, Michael took up running with a passion and he’s now gone to several countries to fuel his new favorite sport. Just back from Morocco, he ran more than 100 miles over nine days over terrain inaccessible to vehicles, also scaling the tallest peak in Northern Africa along the way. These are true vacations, however, as most nights ended with a feast and some wine.
