A peek into Mik's life:

Born in: 1989

Profession: K-8 Physical Education Teacher

Favourite GORP Flavour: Cocoa, Hemp & Almond

Your Inspiration: Eric Thomas (Mentality)

Pre-game music: Gritty Rap, Tropical house, Funk! Good beats keep me going always!

I'm happiest when: I am 15 mins into a trail run, climbing a mountain, spending time at the lake.

My favourite meal is: Baby back Ribs full rack or all you can eat! Rice pudding for dessert.

On my day off: Listen to a podcast, plan a quick road trip adventure, bike to the park with a disc or ball. Figure out who else has the day off!

In my bag: Shoes, Agenda, Lock, water bottle, iPod, gym clothes, Snacks, foam roller.

My motto/philosophy is: “Find your “WHY”

I wind down by: Organizing things, watching Sportscenter, music.

My friends call me: Mik

Mantra that keeps you going when things get tough: “I didn't come this far, to only come this far.”   or I sing the ABC’s.

Most awkward party trick: I can cross my arms twice and fit my head through the space…
