The Long Run



 

In the Long Run the author tells the tale of his life as a chronic alcoholic and how running helped him swap one addiction for another. It is fair to say I think running is the better choice of the two.

Mishka does not hold back in when describing his life on alcohol and the self-destructive path he was on. How he managed to live through this destructive stage of his life is beyond me. His transformation into a ultra-marathon runner some might suggest is equally destructive.

A great story of redemption that is very humble in its telling. This is another great example of what can be achieved in the short story format.
