About Me: Iím a Clydesdale but working not to be. Cycling is my strength and I love riding. In 2008 Triathlons became a new sport to me when I competed in relay team triathlon. 2009 was my first season as an individual competitor, and Iím hooked.
What I do to pay the bills: Finance Analyst
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: My wife and I train together so we leave our cats to look after the house.
Short term triathlon goals: To swim better, I canít seem to swim in a straight line unless Iím in a pool.
Long term triathlon goals: Compete in a half ironman then compete in a full ironman one year later.
Fantasy triathlon goals: Complete a half-ironman in 5.5 hours
Three favorite albums: Anything that works when Iím training
Favorite movie: Old School Ė I could watch it everyday
Chocolate: Yes please, it goes with everything
Garlic: Canít go wrong with garlic
Blue Cheese: No thanks
For breakfast, I usually have: Eggs, coffee, turkey bacon
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Pasta or pizza
My best triathlon advice is: Donít over think it, last minutes changes donít work out, and have fun.
My best non-triathlon advice is: Do what makes you happy, and do it with heart.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: Iím not going to be able to finish the swim!!
Everything I need to know I learned from: Family and friends
My deepest, darkest secret is: Realizing that life is more enjoyable with my wife at my side, work, training, living are easier when sheís next to me.
