How to embark on a journey into the unknown | Michele Graglia | TEDxPineCrestSchool

Michele Graglia has run over 20 ultra marathons--races that exceed 100 miles and test the limits of the human mind and body. In this talk, Michele describes the life-changing moment when he took that first step into the unknown and all that he's learned as he has journeyed throughout the world, pushing his limits in pursuit of his passion. Michele Graglia is a model, author, fitness coach, and ultra marathon runner. His book Ultra was published by Sperling & Kupfer in May 2017. Originally from Taggia, Liguria, Italy, Graglia became an international model represented by Major Model Management in New York and the now defunct Irene Marie Model Management in Miami, FL, where he was initially discovered. He currently lives in Los Angeles, California. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
