For the past several years I’ve had the pleasure of doing run intervals workouts on Thursday mornings at 7am with the YWCA. One of the regular runners in the group is Mike Mann. Turns out Mike has an impressive, inspirational running life story.
Mike agreed to let me interview him over Zoom last week. I’m not quite ready to start my own podcast, but I do have a bit of a history of interviewing fellow athletes who stay active because of or in spite of a health challenge. Some of you might remember the Red Rider Hangouts I did way back in 2010 through 2014 or so.
In Mike’s case, he got serious about running again after surviving a bout of prostate cancer. Cancer and diabetes can for sure be a bit of a wake up call.
Here’s my conversation with Mike. He offers great insights, advice and resources. I offer them to you right under the video of our dialogue. Let me know what you think of our conversation. I love hearing from you!
