Michael Anderson joined Achilles as the Director of the NYC Chapter in May of 2017.
Michael has competed in over 350 races in the U.S. and around the globe, has completed eleven consecutive Boston Marathons and has run over 25 marathons including five World Marathon Majors (Tokyo, Boston, Berlin, Chicago, and NYC).
After running his first NYRR race in 2000, Michael was moved by the power of Achilles and has been an admirer ever since. He credits the accomplishments of Achilles athletes as a factor in pushing himself on race day and for toughing it out in the grueling final miles of each marathon he has run. Before joining Achilles, he spent several years as an event manager and freelance writer.--- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/irunbecause/support
