Tech Maven Turned Marathoner: Carmichael Caldwell Partners with Supersapiens
September 7, 2023
Caldwell embodies the ideal of the modern-day renaissance man, balancing the mind of an entrepreneur, the body of an athlete, and the passion of an artist
Atlanta – 07 September 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Supersapiens, the world’s first glucose management system designed for athletes, is thrilled to unveil its newest ambassador, the ever-evolving Carmichael Caldwell. Teaming up with Supersapiens, powered by Abbott’s Libre Sense Glucose Sport Biosensor, Caldwell embodies the ideal of the modern-day renaissance man, balancing the mind of an entrepreneur, the body of an athlete, and the passion of an artist.
“When seeking an ambassador who truly embodies the desire to be the best version of themselves in both performance and personal growth, Carmichael was a natural choice,” declared Phil Southerland, Supersapiens CEO and Founder. “His journey from tech enthusiast to devoted marathoner reflects our commitment to pushing boundaries and embracing innovation.”
Caldwell’s journey is nothing short of inspiring. Leaving behind the constraints of corporate America, he embarked on a global odyssey, facing the challenges of being overweight and the drive to run just one mile without pausing. This goal transformed into a passion that saw him shed over 50 pounds and kindled a flame to run marathons. His ultimate aspirations? A sub 2:20 marathon and expansion into the world of triathlons with an ultimate goal of earning a spot to the IRONMAN World Championships.
“I was introduced to Supersapiens while searching for nutrition-focused, data-driven solutions for my marathon training. The partnership with Supersapiens feels like stepping into the future. Hailing from Silicon Valley, I’ve always been drawn to cutting-edge technologies. Supersapiens is not just an advanced tool; I envision it becoming the gold standard for dietary management, not just for elite athletes, but for everyone. Their commitment to research and science-first excellence resonates deeply with my belief that this is the trajectory for the future of endurance sports.”
With Supersapiens’ insights and analytics, Caldwell has shifted from a generalized nutrition approach to a more individualized, data-driven methodology, enabling real-time adjustments. This newfound perspective is gearing him up for the Chicago Marathon, where he’s targeting a 2:40 finish.
Beyond his athletic ambitions, Caldwell’s philosophy is a relentless pursuit of incremental improvement, aiming to become 2% better every single day. He champions the belief that life’s potential is boundless, mirroring the characteristics of a “Modern Day Renaissance Man.” This unique blend of entrepreneur, athlete, and artist is beautifully encapsulated in his three-legged stool metaphor where each component reinforces the others in a balanced, synergistic relationship.
Near-term, Caldwell is running the Boston and Berlin marathons with an eye on tackling all six Abbott World Marathon Majors and the 5 SuperHalfs. Never willing to settle, he would like to start notching top 50 places as he progresses through his running career.
