"Running was my lifesaver. I first started back running to detox, clean out my body and pass that fun, pee in a cup, drug test. I ran to forget, I ran for peace, I ran because it was all I could do and it healed me. Running helped me to look inside myself, forgive myself, trust myself and learn from my past. Running let out all sorts of emotions; I found myself crying, laughing, screaming and puking through this road of recovery."

Timothy Olson on how running fueled his recovery from addictions issues

If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first or if you’ve been running for twenty years..
