Matt Williams has an amazing story. He has battled his addictions and has turned his experience into a mechanism to help other people.

In a quest to discover himself, Matt began running. His journey and his relationship with the open road could potentially land him a partnership agreement with Foot Locker. To honor his father, Matt has dedicated his life to completing the New York City Marathon.

Let Matt tell you his story.

I am 6.5 years sober.

Overnight I lost my car, my job and I was watching my whole life shatter in front of me. Unlike others, I had the fortune of a strong support system and ability to receive proper treatment to overcome my addictions. 

My first attempt at a marathon was The Miami Marathon in 2010. I didn’t train…. I just thought, “Sure, I can wing it”. Come mile 18, my body gave up. I had to walk, jog, stop, stretch, and get bandaged up until I finally hobbled my way across the finish line. 

I decided to run in smaller races, like 5ks. At the time my “training” was limited to running laps in a small parking lot due to my recovery program’s travel restrictions until eventually, I gave up running.

However, I didn’t stop on my passion for fitness. I was able to turn my lifelong passion for health and fitness into a career. Now a strength-training fitness coach, friends have asked for my help in order to run The New York City Marathon. I agreed to the training and surprised myself by asking for a spot on their team. Born and raised in New York, this journey has come full circle for me. This is it. My redemption. Although, lesson learned: I’ve hired a professional running coach. Running has become more to me than just exercise. It’s a time of reflection, meditation and gratitude. More than ever I am ready to share my story and empower young adults to work through addiction and get their second chance.

Matt’s video needs some help. We are asking the Sober Nation family to give his video a vote so that he wins the partnership with Foot Locker. It’s an amazing opportunity for him.
