Thank you so very much to @weareshatterproof & @crossfitsouthbrooklyn for having a wonderful and much needed workout event tonight to help bring community together of people who have been touched by addiction . Brave, strong people in recovery and brave, strong people who know what loss feels like. I was so touched to be in a room with so many for a change. Often, despite knowing I am not alone, it still feels like a lonely road to walk missing my family so much and not wanting to be a burden to others. But tonight that was not the case, and I am better for it. I was particularly touched by a woman, a mom who had lost her son, who came along way alone having never been to a cross fit gym before, ready to step way out of her comfort zone and share in the efforts to keep going with her life for her family and find support amongst others. I did not get to tell her, but shes my hero today. It was everything I could do to not cry while we spoke, watching her tackle things shed never tried before was so inspiring.
Also @reillyirie75 who has his own story and has been a solid and compassionate source of support during these past two years. Thank you friend.
Will see you in October for the 5k shatterproof community.

In Philadelphia there are neighborhoods where everyone you meet has lost a friend or family member to the opioid epidemic.

I have a mentor who volunteers his time going out to some of the same destitute places that could be labeled ground zero of the epidemic, and he listens to people. “When you look at another human being in the eyes, you learn to just listen. You know...in the way that I would want to be listened to, with dignity you know.” Hearing those words makes you realize that demonizing someone for their addiction illness, doesn’t help them, it just robs them of their dignity.
Addictions can appear in many ways, Shatterproof aims to work with people to reduce the stigma and secrecy associated with addiction, removing the shame felt by those struggling with this disease and their families. While at the same time working to reduce the devastating impact of addiction on families across America, and ensuring that those afflicted with this disease gain access to proven and effective treatments and long-term recovery programs.

In honor of Recovery month , in needing to shed much light on Overdose Awareness and in the hope's of ending the stigma of addiction @weareshatterproof is encouraging anyone who has been touched by addiction, its profound effects of loss, and its constant fight for recovery to share how fitness has helped them in their battle.
I found Shatter Proof after my brother Henry passed away from overdose on March 9th 2016. Fitness and wellness having always been a mainstay in my life I was at a total loss as to how I had not been able to get my brother to share in that. On any given week I spend countless hours helping & talking to people about their journey through wellness, but always hit road blocks with helping my big brother. I thought about it constantly, I talked to my mom and friends about it but never managed to make the connection for him. I would hear him tell people I was strong, ran marathons, danced, always proud but bridging the gap between us in this way didn't go past lose conversations and hope.
When Henry passed I was in the midst of training for a half marathon, with two marathons on my calendar for 2016. It was going to be one of my biggest years of running yet I had felt and then I was hit with his loss. I could barely move at first. I could no longer run with music. I only left my house at off hours to run when not as many people would be out. I ran at night for long miles alone and as the sun was setting and rising hoping to have brief moments of peace and quiet conversation with my brother in my thoughts. But my runs were falling apart. 2 weeks after his passing I ran the nyc half marathon and cried through the whole thing my best friend stopping to hug me and keep me from stopping at mile 7. 6 weeks later it was time for my full marathon (BigSur) and heartbroken, exhausted and undertrained I bowed out, vowing to save for the future. I kept at it, piecing my training back together and geared myself up for my following marathon in November (my second NY). .... continued in comments..... #strongerthanaddiction #weareshatterproof #rememberinghenry
