My name is Michael.


So now that you know my name, here are some things about me you won’t get from my name.

  • I believe that I am a runner, even though the odds are against me.  I’m not built like most runners.  I wasn’t always trying to be a runner.  I used to play basketball, football, and lacrosse in high school.  Running is something that found me after I suffered an injury in football and nearly sidelined me from everything.  I wasn’t allowed to have any contact or lift anything while I was injured and one day I started to run.  The next day I ran a littler farther and before I new it I was hooked.
  • My body isn’t designed for running.  I have extra bones in my back, elongated bones in my foot, both which have given me injuries of the years.  I make myself sound like a freak but I can assure you I look nothing like a disfigure monster.
  • When I’m not running I am an artist.  I work with ceramics and love everything about it.  It is a part of me that is in a constant development and is a way to express my thoughts when words aren’t enough.
  • When I’m not an artist I spend my days as a teacher, teaching ceramics to high school students.  I couldn’t have a better job.  Of course there are ups and downs but teaching is what I was born to do.  I love to talk, I love to entertain, and I love ceramics so it is perfect.
  •  I have my master in Art Education.  This is something that has ruled my life and achieving this accomplishment is a very satisfying part of my life.
  • I love running.  I know what it is like to be told you might never run again but I also know what it like to beat the odds and come back to running faster and farther than before.  I have always enjoyed running.  It is a world that I live in and not many people fully understand why I do it.  Running has become a big part of my life and effects almost everything that I do.

So now there are a few things you know about me besides my name and if you want to know more then you will have to follow along and read my stories.
