My name is Mike Russo and I am competing in one of the most coveted IRONMAN races in the world: IRONMAN Lake Placid on July 23, 2017. Competing in the IRONMAN has been a life long goal of mine and I am extremely excited for the opportunity to not only achieve a personal goal, but help others achieve theirs. I will be competing in a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run, for Back on My Feet Baltimore!
Back on My Feet, a national organization operating in 11 major cities coast to coast, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources. Their unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives. For all in need, they aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope.
