I love all things that are active and even better if it is done in the outdoors
I want all people to experience what it is like to be active.
I have worked in so many professions, it is scary. From running commercial construction projects, designing and building furniture, a short time at a tattoo shop (9 tattoos), Bike shop manager, site director for Boys & Girls club, and one summer I actually placed burial vaults for funeral services.
I am a total endurance junkie, I always want to go further or longer and make it tougher.
Its not about the results at the end of the race for me, it is about the time that goes into preparing that I enjoy.
I have completed 1/2 marathons, full marathons, sprint triathlons, half iron duathlons, 50k ultra and a 50 mile ultra. I have cycled across Florida 171miles in 10 hours, ran 3 Ragnar Relays(one as an ultra), Spartan race, 2 Tough Mudder's, and 2 GORUCK Challenges. Other misc runs and races along the way.
Bucket list races are a 100 mile run, MTB Race called ride the divide which is a 2742 mile ride from Canada to Mexico, Run the Florida trail which is 1400 or so miles.
I grew up hunting and grew all of our own food, cows, pigs, greenhouses, chickens, gardens. I have hunted turkey and deer in Missouri, Mule deer and Elk in Colorado, and Black Bear with a bow in Canada.
I love AC/DC, pizza, coffee, and spending countless hours at the beach.
