In 2007 at the age of 24, Michele Graglia moved to Miami Beach from Italy in order to expand his family’s floral business in the United States, but, within a week of his arrival, a modeling agent discovered him on the street and convinced him to pursue a career in modeling. Enriched but unsatisfied by the profession, Michele walked off of the runway in 2012, shortly after stumbling upon a book about ultra-running – a book that dramatically changed his life.
In this interview with TheirTurn, Michele recounts his journey from a small-town salesman to international supermodel and world-renowned vegan ultra-runner.
Michele’s book, Ultra, was published in Italy in 2017 and is scheduled to be released in the United States in 2019.
