Team Footsteps member, Mike Ramsdell is currently a 16 year active duty United States Marine that has been an active Team Footsteps member, since the inception of the organization. Mike continues to push his limits and strives to honor our fallen with taking one footstep at a time. Ultramarathons have been a new life journey, for him to actually honor our fallen, but also to assist him with struggles that he deals with as being a service member that has completed multiple deployments throughout his career.
Mike started running ultramarathons in 2014 and has not looked back. Mike has completed multiple 50 kilometer, 50 mile, 100k and one 100 mile race in this short time of running ultramarathons. All the while his driving motivation is completing these races for those who cannot. Mikes belief is that enduring a little pain to recognize those who has paid the ultimate sacrifice. These races are always a means of showing that honor, and on October 29th, 2016 he will be venturing out on another epic journey to honor our fallen.
Closing out Fire Prevention month he is following the Team Footsteps mission on “How Many Steps Will You Take” in a 24 hour endurance challenge. He is currently registered and will be running “ROAM Ultras 24 Hour Endurance Race, Dia De Los Muertos 24 Endurance Run” to honor our fallen. This race will take place on a USATF .59 certified loop, in Lillington, North Carolina. This race will be to accept the challenge from Team Footsteps and continue to rise awareness across this great nation for our fallen brothers & sisters!
