Our guest this week, Uriah Steffen had his left leg amputated below the knee as a result of a car/bike accident in 2012. 

But that’s not where his story started. In 2008 he failed out of two different colleges & was arrested for his first DUI.

In 2009 he landed his dream job after completing an auto tech program in Pennsylvania but was arrested again for his second DUI.

He continued to struggle with his addiction through 2012 facing homelessness, eviction & ultimately losing his job!

Although he married the love of his life in July 2012 in Los Vegas, the addiction already had a vise-grip on him. 

On August 19, 2012 he made the choice to be sober. He started biking to work & began to truly enjoy this new source of endorphins. 

On October 15, 2012 he was hit while biking to work. The accident had an estimated 80-85 mile per hour impact.

Since that accident he has taken on a new perspective in life. He is now a proud husband, father, & triathlete.
