Long time runner and friend to Health Focus and Salem, Michael Wardian has been traveling the globe, racing in Hong Kong, New Zealand and Tokyo. He currently is the points-leader in the Ultra Trail World Tour and just ran a 2:28:14 marathon in Tokyo. 2016 will be another incredible year with races spanning all distances from 5k to 100-milers or more and Michael's big goal is to set the fastest overall time at the Abbott World Marathon Majors which will take place in Tokyo, Boston, London, Berlin, Chicago and New York City marathons. It will be an incredible year and Michael is so excited to be a part of the tradition in Salem. Michael wishes to thank his sponsors…Hoka One One, Vitargo, UVU, Nathan, Big Spoon Roasters, Injinji, Compressport, Buff, Mio, Julbo, Race Roster, and RaceDots .
