Event Navigation

Recovery Through Running presentation by Ryan Navales: Ultra-runner, President of Inyo Search and Rescue
Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association’s 7th Annual Winter Adventure Series

Ryan found himself homeless in the middle of Downtown Los Angeles’s Skid Row after a decades long struggle with alcohol and drugs. Ryan was in and out of jail, rehabs, and unable to hold a job or provide for his young family. While homeless on Skid Row, he met a marathon-running LA Superior Court Judge and joined his running club. Unaware at the time of what was in store, he began training for what he thought would culminate in the upcoming LA Marathon, but 10 years later wound up being marathons on 5 continents, a 50 mile ultra, and a journey of a lifetime. Somewhere along the way he would find recovery, himself and discover his will to live was stronger than his fear of living sober.
Ryan lives in Bishop,CA, his hometown, with his 16 year old daughter Isabella, where he enjoys his greatest passion, chasing her through life. He’s a school bus driver, wanna be rock climber and President of Inyo County’s Search and Rescue Team

Join Ryan as he presents on his greatest passion.
