A month ago I met Mark Hager for a phoot shoot near his home in Austin. I’ve worked with Statesman writer Pam LeBlanc a lot recently and enjoyed the off beat sports related features she pursues. Hager was hit by a truck while running 2 years ago. Since, he has recovered, continued running and set up a website for injured athletes to meet others of the like in a forum setting. He is a very positive person who gives off the impression that his spirit can’t be damaged. Please read pam’s article is here.
