Gary Morgan is the associate editor of Michigan Runner.
He is one of my great friends, and he is fearless. The man has traveled in more countries than I, and every day starts with a couple hour walk in areas that he travels. Gary has written a column of his travels for years, found at MichiganRunner.com, one of our partner sites.
In 2008, we did the Gary & Larry Show at the Olympic Trials and in Beijing. I have to admit that those are some of my favorite memories.
Art & Jennie McCafferty, the publisher and editor of MIchigan Runner have championed digital video for the Running Network, Michigan Runner and Michigan Golf for nearly two decades. Art & Jennie understood the value of the web, and social media long before me.
Gary Morgan has a cult following, he is known as Mr. Ubiquitous.
His gentle camera focus, and his thoughtful questions come from a man who made the 1988 Olympic team the hard way-he earned it. Walking the 20k and 50k, Gary made the 1988 Olympic team at the 20k Race walk. A 2:35 marathoner, Gary Morgan learned to racewalk and pursued his dream.
Here is a collection of Gary's work, posted by my spiritual advisor, Art McCafferty as Gary Morgan sleeps on his crazy flights back from China.
I believe Gary Morgan is pace setting for a half marathon next weekend somewhere in America. He is a pace setter for about 30 races a year.
