I’ve known Michael Wardian for the better part of a decade. I’ve trained him when I lived near Washington, DC and was teammates with him at the Marathon des Sables (first American team to ever podium). I’ve also interviewed him from afar numerous times. That said, I’d never interviewed him in person until after his second place finish at the 2011 Trail Runner Ultra Race of Champions (UROC) 100k. In the interview he talks about his race, getting lost, and his training in which he’s been addressing his “weaknesses.” We also caught up on his silver medal (team gold) performance at the IAU 100k World championships run two weeks prior and where we might see him next.
