Tom Bodkin went from former addict in a high stress career to Ironman triathlon finisher in addiction recovery. He is a US Army veteran, former forensic anthropologist for a medical examiner office, and former adjunct professor of anthropology at four year university.
Tom talks about his journey from recovery to completing the 70.3 Ironman. We talk about the ten years he has spent sponsoring people in Narcotics Anonymous, the sponsor/sponsee relationship, what families should do if a loved one is using, and his decision to make the story of this journey more public. "People in recovery are valiant warriors," Tom says. Join us for this inspiring conversation. Tom gives shout-outs throughout our talk today.
Note: Tom's views and experiences are his own and he is not speaking on behalf of the Narcotics Anonymous organization.
