2018 TCS Marathon - Michael Y

-- placeholder --

Mike currently lives in Verona, NJ with his beautiful wife Jill and their amazing new baby girl Elizabeth.  Mike is an attorney in Hackensack and also serves on the Board of Trustees for Habitat for Humanity of Bergen County. 

Before law school, Mike used to run quite frequently and previously ran the NYC Half Marathon three times.  Although it has been several (3+) years since Mike has raced (or even regularly run), he couldn’t miss the opportunity to fundraise for such a great cause (and the motivation to get back in shape)!

Goal Finishing Time: Mike will be thrilled if he can replicate a 10 minute mile pace after being a couch potato for several years.  That said -- simply getting across the finish line may be a small miracle. 

Race Day Thoughts: Scatterbrained!  “Where is my race bib?  Did I charge my phone?  Is it too cold for shorts?  What time should I leave?  Did I lock my car?”

Race day Ritual: Listen to “Born to Run” on repeat.
