Shawn Livingston

Shawn hadn’t had a sober day in his adult life until he was handed a 20 year prison sentence. “What do you want me to do?” his lawyer asked.

Knowing he was about to lose the best years of his adult life, Shawn threw out the pill bottles and fought his heroin addiction, all in an attempt to reconnect with his family before going away.

Something greater than Shawn was at work; his treatment and recovery documented, the judge stayed Shawn’s prison sentence. After 14 months in recovery and rebuilding Shawn Livingston, he discovered a passion for trail and ultra marathon running.

Now regularly competing in trail races and ultra marathons around Austin, Texas (and beyond), Shawn commits his time to raising awareness around the dangers of opiod addiction, sure, but also the beauty of finding the catalyst to change a person’s life.

Shawn works at a treatment center, serving as a role model for those who sit in his old chair and mentors at-risk youth in Austin, Texas.
