I'm Running Across America to explore our addiction epidemic
3,000 miles to celebrate 3,000 days sober.
On March 16th 2020, I celebrated 3,000 days sober. To commemorate the milestone, I’m aiming to run 3,000 miles between NYC and Seattle — and explore America’s addiction epidemic along the way.
For years I was in denial about my struggles with alcohol and painkillers. Fearing the stigma, I refused to call myself an addict or alcoholic. I felt isolated and alone. But as I've slowly opened up, I’ve realized that my struggles are far more common than I imagined.
There are 40 MILLION Americans who suffer from substance addiction — that’s 1 in 7 adults. As I run across America, I want to hear and share some of their stories.
I’m partnering with Director Sarah Schutzki to create a documentary that chronicles my journey — the run itself, alongside my personal experiences with addiction and recovery, interwoven with the stories of other individuals struggling with the disease.
We hope to play a part in destigmatizing addiction and promoting mental health.
Overcoming addiction is a marathon, not a sprint.

Last February I ran 7 Marathon in 7 Days on 7 Continents.
Beginning with 26.2 miles across Antarctic ice, I then ran back-to-back marathons in Cape Town, Perth, Dubai, Madrid, Santiago, and Miami. Definitely a wild week :-)
