Mike Silvio on running the NYC marathon
On Nov. 5, during the early morning hours, more than 50,000 runners gathered on Staten Island waiting to run the 2017 TCS New York City Marathon. Seven continent marathoner Michael Silvio says, “The post-race experience of New York is different than any other race. Everyone wears their medal as they are out and about the city for the next 24 hours, and all the New Yorkers congratulate you like you won the race.” Silvio is a diabetic, heart patient and seven continent marathon runner. He is currently writing a book about the seven life lessons he learned running a marathon on each continent. He is the Vice President of Logistics Innovation at Surgere and is an adjunct faculty member at Wayne State University Mike Ilitch School of Business.
