Here’s a great story if you’re in a running rut:
My friend was a serious drug addict for 15 years.
Heroin, OxyContin, cocaine, crack, meth, mdma, or Xanax…you name it.
The substances quickly started mucking up their thoughts.
The scariest of which was an overdose.
After the nightmarish hospital visit.
It was here that my friend made a breakthrough.
Specialists and family harped the importance of finding a wholesome activity…
But it wasn’t until his uncle recommended running that things started to change.
Since my friend showed interest. His uncle would drive over to the rehab center.
They’d go after it steady.
My friend hasn’t looked back since.
Recently, celebrating two years of sobriety!!!
Now he logs 35 miles a week. And has completed 6 half marathons with another coming up in the fall.
He is no longer depressed or suicidal.
He’s found the runner’s high.
Speaking of the runner’s high…
I write about it a lot in The Runner’s High Newsletter.
Salud to your well-being,
