For this week’s Jaybird Forecast, we caught up with Jaybird ambassador Michael Wardian, a marathoner and ultra-marathoner who has a slew of distance-running wins to his credit including three consecutive wins at the US 50K Championships in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Known for the staggering number of races he participates in (in 2017 alone he ran in 51 events in 11 different countries), Wardian has participated in Olympics trials, held a slew world records, and been name Ultra Runner of the Year four years in a row.
Check out Michael’s recommended podcasts on the complex and interesting world we live in.
