From Prison to High Performance Athlete and Philanthropist with Mike Rouse
Mike Rouse is an accomplished endurance athlete with hundreds of high-profile races and several world championships to his name.
He has trained and competed alongside some of this country’s most elite athletes in Ironmans, Ultra Marathons, and 24 hour runs to raise money for families of the fallen.
He’s also spent 14 months in a United States prison, and been locked up in a Turkish prison. He built and ran a nonprofit to support former inmates and smuggled bibles into Iraq.
Today he is in his 60’s and still running circles around people half his age, literally and figuratively, with his athleticism and his own inner strength. He is committed to using his life to serve others, and in this episode of American Snippets he opens up about the difficult turns his life took, his own accountability for those turns, and how he found the biggest blessings by giving back.
