A love of running and being outdoors was always a part of Michael. He possessed an endurance like no other — An endurance that carried him 8 years past a brain cancer diagnosis in 2012 that should have only given him 15 months.
In that eight years he finished a Santa Rosa Triathlons, countless other races, and a damn Half Ironman on chemo. But more importantly he gave those eight years and whole self to his family, particularly his wife Margo, daughter Cora, and son Roman.
Michael took his last breath and finally let his body rest on August 8, 2020, but he will never leave us. My brother once notably said — "Race to the finish line and towards each other". Team Triton will be racing in his memory on October 2nd and while we may not be moving as fast as the rest, we’ll certainly be racing towards each other.
