Standing together: Tom and Zoe

Duration: 03:22 minutes

Zoe and Tom have been together for 12 years and have 2 children Orla and Oliver. In the early stages of their relationship Tom was an Alcoholic - he has been sober now for 6 years. Zoe stood by him though as he fought to kick the booze which he did by taking up running. He's completed some mammoth challenges, he ran coast to coast across America last year but the bigger challenge is building a "normal" life. In this part of the conversation they talk about why Zoe didn't leave when times were tough and how they are building a future for their children.
