Michele Graglia – From the Yukon to the Desert in 2016
Michele Graglia Interview
Sarah and I interviewed Michele Graglia a few years ago, and I found time to catch up with him recently about his recent adventures. You may remember him as the former underwear model-turned ultrarunner who had some audacious plans for his time on the trails, and we get to hear the details about how they’ve worked out.
In 2016, he’s already run (and won) the frozen Yukon Ultramarathon where he faced temperatures that hit -40 degrees, then a few months later, ran Badwater where temps crested 120.
In this interview with Michele Graglia, we talk about:
- What Michele learned at UTMB
- How he prepared for an arctic race while living in Southern California
- What prompted him take on a double Badwater
- What it takes to land a sponsor deal
- and more about his passion for adventure running.
