My name is Mike Stone and I’m the Manager of Runner’s Edge and men’s coach for the FAU Cross Country Team. I’ve been a regular on the south Florida running scene for some time now. I grew up and attended school in NJ. After spending a few years in the I.T. industry, I hiked the A.T. and moved to Florida. I can often be found running around Boca, a few times a week and on the FAU Track, walking my old yellow lab, or haggling car dealers about old Mustangs. While I may not be lacing up my racing flats nearly as much as I once did, I still enjoy coaching collegiate runners and helping others get the most out of their training. My favorite race- 5k’s, favorite shoe- Nike Structure
favorite food- Pizza, favorite candy- Reeses PB cups.
I was born in Miami, FL and I am 26 years old. I got into running as a senior in high school when I decided to join the team just for fun. I ended up finding it enjoyable and it satisfied my urge to compete. Following my success at various distances there, I was given the chance to compete collegiately for FAU. After 4 years as a student athlete, I proudly hold the school records for the 800, 1500, 3000, 5000(xc and track), 8k(xc), and 10k(xc). I am currently attending nursing school in Miami to pursue a future career in the health care field.
