Racing For Recovery: From Addict to Ironman

Details

by Todd Crandell and John Hanc

An incredible story of hitting rock bottom, rising back to life through running, swimming and cycling.

Todd Crandell’s drug use and drinking destroyed his life. In his twenties he had gone from being a hockey player on his way to a professional career to a homeless, starving and drug-addicted ghost of himself.

After several brutal and harrowing encounters with rock-bottom, he decided to quit cold turkey; then he took up triathlons, and found that athletic effort helped him overcome his addictions.

Since becoming sober on April 15, 1993, Todd has founded an organization (Racing for Recovery) that targets adolescents fighting drugs and alcohol. He now competes regularly in Ironman Triathlons (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 mile marathon run), works as a professional speaker and drug counselor, helping others to use sports and other positive endeavors to prevent or escape addiction.

A mesmerizing, inspirational story of self-destruction and resurrection.
