Who We Are
A community of sober runners accomplishing amazing things together
At Recovery Road Runners (RRR for short), we support and inspire sober runners with resources, events, trainings, and community. Started as a Facebook group in 2021, it began as a place for runners maintaining a sober lifestyle to support one another and now has morphed to new heights our founder and admin members never thought possible.
If you're sober, sober-curious, sober-seeking, or anywhere in-between AND you love to run (any distance & any pace!!), this is the place for you.
Welcome!! We are SO glad you're here.

Writer Lonna Whiting is admittedly "not awesome" at running, and that's why she believes running is the perfect recovery tool for her "toolbox." Read about all the reasons Lonna keeps one foot in front of the other as part of her long-term sobriety success.

EAT, SLEEP, RUN. REPEAT. That is what my running shirt has printed on the front.
I feel like an impostor wearing it. DRINK, PASS OUT, RUN. REPEAT. This is the real truth.
There is a slight pounding behind my eyeballs, a not so gentle reminder that I once again betrayed my self-imposed limits of Chardonnay consumption the night before. I peel open an eyelid to view the clock. My body can already detect what it will say. Runners have an innate sense of time.
I force myself upright, as if this simple act can erase the effects of last nights drinking. Into believing that this perpetual groundhog day is totally normal. I know it’s not. Most people do not need to put rules around their drinking.
I know this run is the only thing that will give me the false sense that my life is intact. That I am not on a downward spiral. And, god forbid, I am not that “A” word.
