A different road to recovery
Eric Moon struggled with alcohol abuse for nearly two decades before his wife’s decision to divorce him was part of the wake up call he needed to make real changes his life. But even in recovery, he felt adrift and uncertain he could maintain those changes, until he saw a documentary on an ultra race that opened up a whole new world of possibility for him.
After finishing his first 50K, he knew he’d found a new purpose, a new identity, a new path out of addiction. Now he sees himself as more than an addict, and it’s transformed his life, as well as his relationship with his family. Along the way, he learned that only he could save himself from the maddening cycle he’d been in for 20 years.
