Meet the Staff: Mike

Get to know the fit professionals lacing up your shoes at Big River Running. This month, meet Mike who hails from Richmond Heights and can be found helping customers at Big River University City or out logging miles! Mike is a humble guy, but has finished 6 marathons and 21 half marathons. He even completed the Run the Year Challenge in 2017, meaning he logged 2,017+ miles in 2017. His favorite place to run is Tilles Park and its nearby neighborhoods. In the future his goal is to run a half marathon or longer distance in every state. But what really gets him excited? Helping other people accomplish their goals, which is what he likes about working at Big River. Mike’s not always running. He volunteers with the Boy Scouts of America, cares for his two pet rabbits Abbie and Casey, and enjoys cycling and photography. Be sure to say hi to Mike and tell him your goals for 2018 next time you’re at Big River University City!
