On the Fourth of July, I ran up the Incline through a herd of holiday hikers, and just below the top, a group of six downhillers nearly knocked me off the steep trail. Jarring, but this was to be expected on a day when I passed 23 people going down in my 24 minutes going up. If evenly distributed, this wouldn't have been too bad — I might've only had to dodge one per minute. But they weren't; each seemed to emerge from nowhere, above my line of sight, 23 threats that left me off-balance and convinced it's time to put a stop to this dangerous practice.
