Above Ground Podcast #196: Gonna Fly Now

For those of us who lack self-love, life can be arduous. Like carrying around a hundred-pound weight. A weight hard to shed no matter how hard you run. Lou Solano found recovery in the running. Connection in running. And Lou is gonna fly now because he knows he is never alone in the running or in life. 

What’s up everyone? Welcome to episode one hundred ninety-six of Nippertown’s mental health podcast from the peerpective. This week we discuss suicide, running, and connection. The power of mother nature’s soundtrack and a group of strangers cheering you on to just cross the finish line. Peer support is at its essence. 

Lou knows recovery from a suicide attempt is not going to be perfect or easy. Lou likes to focus on where he’d like to finish and not the missteps along the way. Lou came to our attention through his article titled, You Are Not Alone, for Adirondack Sports magazine in July 2022. Thanks to Julie for making the connection. 

Through training and life, Lou continually strides just to keep on running.
