Michael is a former professional cyclist and skater who trained at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. He has coached both cycling and professional running teams. Michael’s most notable achievement was cycling across the US, 5000 miles in 40 days, solo and unsupported in order to raise awareness for ADD / ADHD in 2004. In 2006, Michael suffered a near death accident, which left him with a titanium femur and hip and nearly an inch long leg length discrepancy. By spending time barefoot, Michael gradually coached himself back into running again. Today he runs barefoot up to 20 miles per day.
