Chasing the Dragon
Bill Dowis spent the first 29 years of his life trying to be as comfortable as possible. When things proved too challenging he gave up, and when life handed him something that was too difficult he simply quit. But with a family to take care of, and his weight on the rise, he was forced to push outside his comfort zone where he found euphoria in the pain and accomplishment of running.
Chasing the Dragon is the story of running for reasons other than to simply get in shape. It is the story of running through loss, pain, pride, success, failure, friendship, and love. It is the story of the change that comes from running, the constant search to redefine possible, and how a chronic quitter became addicted to the most physically demanding thing in his life.
