“It’s fairly easy to feel comfortable and want to keep that state all the time. To do great things, you need to step out of your comfort zone and be vulnerable.”

My Path to Contentment: From Addict to Awakened Ultrarunner

First, I would like to thank Aaron at Achieve, Believe, Succeed for sharing this.  It’s an inspiring story of a man who was addicted to alcohol & drugs, even did some jail time, who was able to reclaim his life by running, among other things of course, & became an ultrarunner.  Hello.  That’s a lot of mileage.

Running has been amazing for me in so many ways, I hope to be able to look back someday from a life makes all this look like the “before”.  I don’t, however, hope I have to run 100 miles to do it…
