Seven years sober.
Seven years ago today I wished I was dead. But out the ashes of alcoholism rose a new life of redemption and living each day as an imperfect but sober human.
These photos are from my days of having at least a beverage or a hash pipe in my hands at any given time.
I wrote some thoughts on my blog to mark the occasion.
You can see check it through this link:
Clickable link in bio. Thanks for all the love and encouragement over the years. Here’s to year #8!

I had the honour of sharing my running story with the team at @altraeurope today. People ask me how I run such crazy distances. Few actually know that it started as a drunken bet and that I hated running. Running has given me the freedom in my life to push myself further than I ever imagined and has brought me amazing friendships and adventure. I do it because I love it. If the whole social media world disappeared tomorrow, I couldn’t care less. I’d still be running. But what I’ve realised that my story has helped others struggling with their own personal demons and that’s why I share it.
The fact that Altra have my back makes the adventure so much sweeter. Being a part of their team and seeing how they do “business” is a breath of fresh air. Their values and community-orientated spirit go beyond just being a shoe company.
2018 is gonna be 🔥!

Winter is on the way and it’s a time when a lot of people are demotivated to stay fit and healthy. The key is consistency! It’s very easy post-thanksgiving and pre-Christmas to say, “hey, I’ve already slipped a little, might as well keep eating poorly.” Trust me, digging yourself out of that hole come January is not a fun adventure. This time of year I focus more on being consistent and having fun with running. I’m not out to break records or accomplish. I want to stay fit and be outside regularly. I’m taking my time and maybe exploring a new trail or two. It reveals stuff I normally miss when I’m in the zone. I’m also focussing more on core workouts to build the foundation for racing season in the spring.
This picture is from winter 2013 when a bunch of friends and I ran an impromptu 55 km through the night in a snow blizzard in -4C. It was fun, plain and simple.
Be consistent, add some variety, and stop once in a while to explore your surroundings.

I love travel but one of the great things about being home is a regular running schedule. Got my eyes on a sweet 50k trail race in April. Time to get serious!

#TBT to deep-dive discussion in Dublin with @danny__avidan on all things Thin Lizzy. And the merits of foam-rolling, of course!

Appleton, WI has the highest alcohol consumption rate of any city in the United States. In fact there are 7 Wisconsin cities in the top 10!
With just under a month to my 7th sobriety anniversary, this past week I shared how it has affected my life and heard some testimonies that cut to my marrow. So many people live in shame and are afraid to step into the light. Breaking the silence and speaking out is the most empowering thing one can do in these situations.
I was I inspired by the folks who have chosen to fight their demons and take their lives back.
It’s never too late.

An incredible end to a monumental week! Thanks to everyone who came, listened, and said hey this week. Back to France in the morning but leaving a piece of my heart in Appleton.
I first met Tim through running in Paris. Now that we live in different countries, it’s more difficult to run with him. But when we do, oh boy! Best conversations and (almost) effortless miles. This week hanging out has been the greatest! Onward!

Over the past six years, @timmeier1981 has walked beside me through my darkest days. His grace, wisdom, humility, encouragement, and leadership changed not only my life, but countless others. To be sharing a stage with him this week at the Global Connections conference in Appleton, WI, is bonkers.
Took a month off social media but I'm BACK!

October was SO cool. Got to speak a some rad places in France and traveled to Dublin to spend 48 hrs with Seán and some incredible new friends on a tour bus. It was an honour to open the #ReadyPlayer3 show at the National Stadium and see the massive positive impact my bro has on so many kids. Truly inspiring!
I'm so thankful for our time together, Seán (@jacksepticeye), and for the kindred spirits we met along the way.

Special thanks also to @wwiishu, @mortemer, @egofaptor, @thebrentlilley, @jackwa1sh, @jpincorporated, and @danny__avidan for the hugs, hospitality, and humour. Y’all are wicked cool!
Heading to the Wisconsin on Friday for 10 days to share my story with more people and get some runs/hangs in with ma boy @timmeier1981 so feeling pretty pumped.

Been in a writing cave for a few weeks on various projects and the past 6 days have been pretty loaded. The next 5 weeks are filled with travel and different talks in France and the States. This morning I finished my last talk and apart from some slight tweaks, I'm ready to GO! I love the process of writing and seeing what's in my head come to life! It keeps me sharp and makes me realise that I've still so much to learn. When I first started writing stories and thoughts in journals at the age of 12, I never imagined that putting words together like a poetic jigsaw puzzle would bring me such much joy--and occasionally add grey hairs to my head ;)
Thankful to have outlets like writing, drumming, and running that allow me to express myself and collaborate with kindred spirits.
Now, time for my lunchtime run!!!!

31km (20 miles) this morning in 2:27 on a banana and a glass of water. By km 27 I was starting to die but rallied to finish out my long run. Even when you're empty there's still more in the tank than you realise. The key is learning how to push through and get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

The last three days have been meetings, appointments, Skype calls, project deadlines, and a few sleepless nights. I didn't get to run at all until this evening and boy it was welcomed. Sometimes the pendulum swings towards the above-mentioned business but I know that in order to maintain balance it needs to swing back towards being outside and free. There's always going to be one more email to send or thing to do. Sometimes you gotta stop what you're doing and escape into nature.

That one time I went running with my buddy Matt in Columbus and got lost. We ended up in a homeless area that was littered with tents and the most random stuff imaginable. We had to jump a huge fence and run back on the freeway!
True story.

Throwback to 2010 and taking Scott and Jenny Jurek around Versailles castle for a run. Love the ultra community.
