UMaine Grad Student, Veteran Featured in Runner’s World Article

Joe Miller, a University of Maine graduate student studying history, was featured in the March issue of Runner’s World magazine. In the article “Running Back from Hell,” Miller shared his experience about running to cope with PTSD after several deployments to Iraq with the Army. He said the simplicity of running helps him control anger and frustration. He prefers 50-milers as opposed to shorter distances because the ultramarathons require more planning and preparation, which is what he says he was good at in the military. He’s now training for a 100-mile race.
