Fernando Escobar is overcome with emotion after finishing his first half marathon in Tustin on Sunday, March 3, 2019. Nine months ago Escobar was living under a bridge in Redlands, addicted to methamphetamine and alcohol. "I feel like I defeated a monster," he said of finishing the race. He hugs Angelina Cabrera. Both are living at the OC Rescue Mission's Village of Hope. (Photo by Mindy Schauer, Orange County Register/SCNG)
