Out-Running Addiction In 'Running Ransom Road'09:32

This article is more than 7 years old.

Caleb Daniloff  used to be known as a drunk, an addict, an abuser. He came from a stable, middle-class family with no obvious explanation for his downward spiral, yet down he went for some 15 years.

And then, he started to run. He ran to confront himself, his past and to get sober. He ran marathons in Boston, New York, Vermont and Moscow.

Today, he's still a runner and still sober. He's written about his long run from addiction to sobriety in his new book, "Running Ransom Road: Confronting The Past One Marathon At A Time."
