Running + Recovery

September 4, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on , repeating until September 25, 2016


Join us and top ultra-runner and fellow recovery member, Yassine Diboun of Wy’east Wolfpack, for a special 4-week Running + Recovery Series.

Every Sunday in September we will meet at the Leif Erickson gate in Forest Park at 10am, where Yassine will give a brief talk on a specific aspect of running, and then lead us on a fun and casual group run in the park. No previous running experience is needed and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!

As a special incentive for completing the Running + Recovery Series, each finisher will get a special t-shirt from Territory Running ($30 value) and a Salt & Straw gift card ($10 value), as well as other little perks from Wy’east Wolfpack!

Research has consistently shown that running and other physical activity not only helps to decrease drug and alcohol cravings by supplying the brain with a natural dopamine boost, it also has been shown to mitigate the brain damage caused by substance use disorders.

Join us in September on the trails for some serious fun & adventure in recovery!

About Yassine Diboun:

Clean and sober since July of 2004, one day at a time, Yassine has jumped in feet first making a big splash into the world of endurance running and outdoor adventuring. Yassine has raced everything from 1-mile to the 100-mile distance, often placing near the top, but has found there is more to it than trying to clock the fastest times. This new way of life is more than another obsessive addiction; it has become a physical, mental, emotional, & spiritual outlet for him and many others.
