A friend recently mentioned they had seen a trailer about a Marine who, since leaving the service, has taken up trail running as a means of therapy for the transition back into civilian life. I watched the trailer and the two minutes below instantly resonated. I knew I had to watch the full film.

Although everyone’s experience in the service it different to a degree, most of us walk away with a sense of the unknown that can be much more overwhelming than service itself. As stated in the film:

There is zero carryover in the real world for a machine gunner.”

In my case, change machine gunner to sniper and the stories aren’t much different. Being a runner myself, the full film shows an inside look at the benefits of finding an activity that allows you to relieve stress, reflect, or drop the spinning gears from your head.
