Episode 148: Overcoming alcoholism: saved by cycling and a special lady!

Chris Thomas was an Air Force brat who developed his love for cycling after high school.  Chris quickly fell in love with road cycling and became an avid cyclist and racer.  But, as with a lot of people, alcohol got the best of Chris and almost destroyed him.

10 days before his 50th birthday Chris had a dream job and a dream life, but he was also drinking 2 – 3 bottles of vodka a week with a bottle of scotch thrown in for good measure.

Somehow, Chris found the strength to stop drinking altogether, and he found the strength to get back on his bike again.

And, somewhere in his journey, Chris found the one person who believed in him and the last person who believed in him and he started a new story.

Keep listening folks.  We’re going on a little ride!
