Item Description...

Todd Crandell's drug use and drinking destroyed his life. In his 20s, he had gone from being a promising student 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. He now competes regularly in full Ironman triathlons, works as a professional speaker and drug counselor, and runs a foundation (Racing for Recovery) helping others to use sports and positive endeavor to escape addiction. A mesmerizing, inspirational story of self-destruction and resurrection.

Inspirational.  Jan 29, 2008
I wish more addicts would take their recovery towards a physically healthful path. Todd shows that any addict can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live. The book has a lot of war stories that I am very familiar with and uses them to show that a turnaround is possible for anyone suffering from the disease of addiction. If you are an addict or know someone who is, don't give up. Recovery is possible if you or they want it. Comgratulations Todd. You inspired me to continue on my triathlon path and spreading the word of healthy living. Thanks.
Brutally honest. Inspiring to anyone who battles any kind of addiction and is looking for a better way.  Nov 14, 2006
Crandell is an inspiration. He pulls no punches in chronicling his nearly lethal addiction to alcohol and drugs -- and the price he and those around him paid for that addiction. What clicked for me, in addition to the requisite war stories, was the notion that you can't get sober until you decide to do it for yourself. As inspiring as Crandell's recovery is his desire to help others who struggle with addiction by founding his non-profit Racing For Recovery. This is a guy who can't do things half-way -- not drugs, not sobriety. So, what does he do after he sobers up and is looking for a new challenge? The Ironman. And he's risking everything to turn this new interest in sports and triathlons into a support program for recovering addicts.

I'm biased as I had the privilege of watching Todd run the Ironman Kona this summer 2006 as his guest. Todd's for real. If you're an addict or know an addict and are looking for some answers or simply some sympathetic company this is a good place to start. And the book is just the beginning. To really understand where Todd's from and where he's going -- and how you might be part of that -- get in touch with him and the foundation. He'll probably take your call or answer your email. himself. He cares this much.
Todd Crandell is a true inspiration & roll model since his recovery  May 2, 2006
Racing for Recovery: From Addict to Ironman is an inspirational story. How it conveys that if a dream exists, even the darkest depths of addiction can be overcome once you decide to and make the effort to get help. The way Todd Crandell brought himself from these depths and has dedicated his life to the pursuit of preventing drug and alcohol in children and showing those currently battling addiction that, through a lifestyle of fitness and exercise, proves that you can recover and dreams can come true.
