Steven Downey: uTusk, Everest, and offering it up

steveIn 2011, Steven Downey returned from combat duty in Iraq, and faced a new set of challenges at home: PTSD, anxiety, depression, and weight gain.

And while he was deployed he lost his mother.

Many people would be crushed by the circumstances he faced.

In his own words:

“People give up too easily. The day you’re satisfied, you’re done.”
