Ep. 110 – Christian Griffith – Changing the Story of Child Sexual Abuse
Christian Griffith joins the podcast as our fourth male guest. He is currently on the road in Colorado running across the country on a mission called Run2Heal. He is changing the narratives around child sexual abuse running and speaking across the country. Christian is a survivor himself of child sexual abuse from both his mother and men.
During the episode, Christian goes into the staggering numbers of those that are sexually abused as children. I have known Christian since 2012 or 2013 as he was one of the co-founders of Obstacle Racing Media and we have traveled to various countries together for races. We have worked together on Fuego y Agua so when he wrote about his abuse I was shocked to find out this part of his story.
On the outside, he was what most would consider a total bro, but on the inside, his demons were eating him alive. He talks about all of this on the podcast. How mile after mile of his transatlantic run he is slowly reshaping his own story, helping reshape the conversation of child sexual abuse, and trying to make a better world for his newborn daughter to grow up in.
This is a powerful episode and might be a trigger for some people who have experienced abuse in their past. A huge thank you to Christian for opening up and being so honest about his journey, his story, and check out the links below to learn more about Run2Heal and his mission.
