Mike F. knows running shoes like no one's business! He began running competitively while a student at West Hills High School. It was while running for West Hills that Mike was a member of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Cross Country Championship team. Mike started out as a sprinter and hurdler, but by his Senior year switched to the 800 and 1600. Mike continued to run track for two years in college and began working in Running Specialty at around the same time.
No stranger to adventure, one time Mike and some buddies went out for a trail run near Julian and got lost; 18 long miles later, out of water and no idea how they'd get back, they were rescued by none other than the recently crowned, Miss Julian herself!
Mike's favorite part of working at Laces Running Company is the opportunity to assist new runners become better at our sport. If you have
questions about a specific shoes, (eg. fit, design, etc), in
this area, Mike is beyond compare.
