After the death of her husband in 2009, Michelle launched the popular blog, One Fit Widow where she writes about using fitness as a grief coping mechanism. In 2014, Michelle started a nonprofit, Live the List, to fund bucket list adventures to help widows and widowers follow the dreams they had with their late spouse.
