Triathlon, Addiction, Recovery, Childhood Abuse
 

It all started when…

I Jumped into the pool. Two weeks after a relapse that nearly ended my marriage and life here on earth. I swam 4 lengths of the pool. That’s two laps. I got out huffing, puffing, blue and dizzy. I sat in the sauna for 15 minutes and overheard some fella talking about a nearby triathlon he did last year. Next thing I knew I was in the car, hurrying home to tell my wife the news. Not only was I going to stay sober, I was going to do an Ironman Triathlon.

Live to the Maximum

No one wakes up saying, “I hope to feel anxious, depressed and despondent today.” 

But it happens!

As a recovering addict I know these places all too well. 

There was a point I thought that these spots were part of my being.

I was WRONG!

Mind

The mind collects and distributes information all day and night. It works like a google search first thing in the morning, sending results that become the foundation of our day. Often sending the good, bad and the ugly with no organization.

What are we to do?!

Body

The body houses chemicals that control everything from sleep, wakefulness, hunger, intimate affection and anger. What we put into and how we treat our body determines how our body treats us back. Anxiety can cause a stomach ache and a stomach ache can cause anxiety!

But healthy living is so hard!

Spirit

Sometimes nothing is enough. We can have everything in the world and still end up irritable, restless, depressed and discontent. This is an age old problem. Luckily since the dawn of man there has been an efficient solution that has proved itself 100% of the time. All we have to do is find a way to tap into it and live the life we always dreamed of.
