After nearly twenty years of chasing oblivion, a fight in a bar reveals to a newly sober Mishka Shubaly that he is able to run long distances. Despite his best attempts to dodge enlightenment and personal growth, the irreverent young drunk and drug abuser learns to tame his self-destructive tendencies through ultrarunning. His outrageous sense of humor, however, rages unabated.

Mishka Shubaly is a truly great story teller. I got this after reading I Swear I'll Make It Up to You. Although it covers similar ground it was definitely worth it. Like seeing Hendrix play Like a Rolling Stone at two different gigs, it's the same song but each performance had it's own flourishes.
"So. Damn. Good."
This was a FANTASTIC book and I'm so sad it ended! Funny, heartbreaking, motivating, and just effing great. Highly recommend.
Awesome tale of ones journey through addiction and overcoming it. Great read. Highly recommended to adricts and exercise enthusiast s
I liked how the story flowed together so well and it felt like I was sitting with my friend Mishka having a cup of tea as he told me his story.
"Dark, but rewarding"
The story grabbed me by the collar and made me listen. After a bout of over training, this was the story I needed to hear. I'm going for a run.
"Down to earth"
I liked his honesty. I admire his tenacity and never giving up and how he braved all the pain and discomfort. And how he changed himself. And how he learned to love.
