Out There: The Zen Of Recovery, Weight Loss,
Compassion And Competition
Transforming from a 320+ pound alcoholic and addict into a healthy and happy Buddhist, Libertarian, vegan and elite athlete took David Clark way out there. Now, with ten years of sobriety, his unique perspective is inspiring others to reach deep inside and break free of destructive habits. He shares his amazing story in a bestselling book, Out There: A Story of Ultra Recovery.
“Healthy mind and body is where I found peace,” says Clark. “My hope is that people are able to see, through my story, that there are no boundaries to what we can achieve.” He credits extreme endurance sports for his path to recovery. He ran the Boston Marathon four times in a single day last year, and recently ran four consecutive 50K ultramarathons in four days on a treadmill while attending this year’s ISPO Show in Munich, Germany.
Clark’s spiritual transformation into a practicing Buddhist combined with a fierce drive to compete and win give him a balanced view of a world where compassion and competition seldom work in tandem. Out There is a candid story of addiction and recovery; the lessons learned provide inspiration to never give up despite life’s challenges. It is brutally and unflinchingly honest—and a testament to the power of redemption and the human spirit.
A running coach, sponsored runner and inspirational speaker, David Clark owns a gym near Boulder, Colorado. Prior to running his Quad Boston, he has competed in some of the most difficult endurance races on the planet. An elite athlete, Clark is well respected in the national running community.
