Michael grew up as a sports fan in the DMV. A former cross country athlete in high school, Mike is a trailblazer and has since dusted the roads with three half marathon finishes including a personal-best 93 minute adventure through D.C. in the Navy-Air Force Half with an eye on 26.2 one day. He's also a sorcerer when it comes to card magic and if you ask him to do one he may or may not fool you.

About FanSided

The idea of FanSided was born in 2007, when two brothers felt that their favorite team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was being under-covered by the mainstream media. Taking matters into their own hands, they launched Arrowhead Addict, a move that would spawn the creation of FanSided in 2009, a network of over 300+ fan-powered unique sports, entertainment and lifestyle sites dedicated to team-specific, sport-specific, genre-specific, and fanbase-specific coverage.

From sports, movies and TV to lifestyle and tech, FanSided has you covered.
