Christina Michael

Hometown: Albany, NY

Background: Four knee surgeries later, I decided that running was a much “safer” sport for my body… I grew up playing soccer and basketball throughout high school, and then collegiate level soccer. When I moved to San Diego in 2012, I started racing triathlon, but running still remains #1.

I've been racing competitively since... 2007

PRs:

Half Marathon - 1:24:50
10K – 38:47 (run split of SDIT triathlon)
5K - TBD

Favorite Race: New York City Half Marathon

Favorite workout: Anything coastal and long 

Words to live by: “If it’s still in your mind, it’s worth taking the risk”

Why chose team prado:

PRT has an incredible group of runners. Inspiring and FAST, and fun too! Lots of ladies to get faster with…

What I like to do besides running: Swimming and biking, of course… but, in the meantime, I enjoy some down time with legs up, sun, and beach. I love my work as a physical therapist, and anything involving health and fitness. And… my daily dose of coffee and NPR.
