• Michael graduated from the US Naval Academy in 2006, was a graduate of Loudoun Valley High School and was an avid Soccer player and played rugby while at the US Naval Academy.
• Michael completed multiple Marine Corps marathons, one of which he ran in honor of one of his rugby coaches who lost his life while serving in Iraq.
• Michael is survived by his Dad Brad Quin, Mother Betsy Quin, his sisters Sarah and Phoebe, and fiancée.

• Mike’s Mom from last year- “What a lovely gesture on F3’s part. Michael would truly appreciate this. He was always ready to encourage others through a tough time.
• I remember one Marine Corps Marathon where he turned around and ran backwards til he found a buddy who was struggling and they ran the rest of the race together.
So, I am thinking of all your group, doing this WOD right now. What a way to start your day”
