Now starting his ninth week on the road, Chris Miller has logged 1,197 miles in his cross-continental journey. In that time he has spent almost 24 hours a week on his feet! With his remaining time, Chris has met with numerous individuals who share the goal of improving addiction recovery in the United States, and many of them have incredible stories of their own. Part of Chris and his crew’s aim is to highlight those stories and help support their efforts. Below, we’ve included their most recent video about the city of Lodi, Ohio and the combined efforts of citizens and the local police force to reduce overdose and facilitate recovery in their town. Fair warning: these people have heart.
Moving through Missouri, Chris has struck a steady pace across the country and generally runs over 20 miles per day. In order to support him for those long miles on the road, we sent him a pair of ASICS Gel Nimbus 19 running shoes. And because he’s just that kind of guy, Chris made a video reviewing the shoes for those who are interesting in the Nimbus 19.
