In addition to a lengthy list of podium finishes at marathons, half-marathons, 50K, 100K, and 100-mile races, Michael has set world records for:
In a Runners World interview in 2009, Mike said:
A lot of people say, "Oh, you could be a 2:12 guy or a 2:14 guy if you just focused on one race a year, or two races a year and really built up." And I think the counter argument is that you could get hurt and you wouldn't have any races a year. There are so many opportunities out there and, I love to toe the line. I love to see what I can do and just push the limits and try and experiment with myself.
I like that people can look at me, and say, "Wow, if that guy can do 13 marathons a year and do pretty well maybe I can do one." I think a lot of people can relate to that. Like, that guy works a real job. He's not a professional runner.
Michael is running the Hood to Coast Relay in August 2020 and raising funds for Team World Vision whose primary function is to provide clean drinking water to children throughout Africa.
