Former drug addicts find new fixation on triathlons

http://www.CNN.com/2009/HEALTH/06...

Here is an interesting article about a guy who became involved in the “let’s get wasted” attitude towards drugs, at an early age.

And even though I am guardedly cautious of the benefits of TV, the story claims the guy came home after "a three-day binge," turned on the TV and found inspiration from a sports show featuring someone else who had been addicted to drugs, but turned his attention to sports.

In the article there is a theory that perhaps drug addicts can “trade” their interest in a “drug high” to a “runner’s high.”
