Started running finally after being in active addiction and alcoholism for years. Went to college on a Track Scholarship but that didn't work. I'm 39 years old now and been clean and sober for 1 yr 4 mths 8 days (: Planning on running a 50 miler in late spring early summer in Kansas. This is a great forum!

Sounds like you've overcome a lot. From what I've seen and read, running can be great therapy - ultra running in particular. A healthy addiction to replace the bad!

Hello! I am new here. I try to train regularly to prepare for new marathons. I had a spring marathon, and it was really great.
