Q.Michelle, what’s the best part about your life as a professional athlete? Worst?
The best part is that it’s so much fun. I’m meeting lots of great people and traveling around the world. I’m constantly challenging my mind and body physically. This video here sums it all up!
The bad thing is being away from my friends and family...and missing weddings and Christmas parties.
Q.What are you training for right now?
Right now I’m training for the ITU world championship in France. But my main goal for the season is the Hawaiian Ironman.
Q.You've been running in the ECCO BIOM Racer Lite shoe. Is it your secret weapon?
