3 Things Martin Learned Almost Dying on a Mountain Bike (Ep. 229)

Sometimes we need something unexpected to come and shake up our perspective.

Well, I’m not sure I needed this, exactly, but it happened anyway.

If you noticed my absence in last week’s episode, it’s because I had a mountain biking accident and had to have surgery, among other medical things.

Obviously this experience was unpleasant, but in true College Info Geek fashion I’m making the most of it by focusing on a few lessons I took away from it. Luckily for you, you can just listen to this podcast episode instead of learning them the hard way.

So here are the things that have been on my mind since the accident. Here’s hoping my next life lessons come in less dramatic packaging.
