Confessions of an addict

Are you 100% honest with yourself as you wake up every morning to the same routine? How many of us are willing to talk about our own personal addiction?

Hello my name is Elizabeth and I am an addict. It shames me to admit such a thing, but I could not remain silent any longer. Addiction affects everything around you from your family, job, friends, and even the amount of money in your bank account.

We always focus on what other people tell us about our lives through their perspective. Not everyone will agree but I felt my addiction was healthy for my mind, body and soul. How do you choose to do what you feel is being part of a love for racing and the community against someone who does not understand that what you go through on the course can be a life changing experience? I know there are many people who can tell plenty of stories.

Endurance and Obstacle Racing are not just about the things on the course, but also who and how it affects the lives of others who may not support your addiction. Leading to depression, breakups, and just walking away from the addiction that made you so happy. So many stories and adventures we all have to share.
