5 Things About Me: Michael Hammond
I ran collegiately for Virginia Tech where I majored in economics and math.
Training, for me, is a means to an end. I’m in it for the competition. Truth be told, I’d rather go for a hike than a run.
I have a goal of reaching the highest elevation point of each U.S. state. I also want to climb Everest.
I was born in Houston, TX, and even though I moved away in 2nd grade, I consider it my hometown. Several generations of my family have lived there. Rockets/Astros/Texans fan.
I am very interested in the autism spectrum- I’ve been an active member of Autism Speaks for several years now.
