About Me: I first did triathlons in 1985 and 1986... then work, marriage, kids came along. next thing I knew, I was 42, it was 2004, and I was horribly out of shape.

in 2004, I did 2 triathlons
in 2005, I did 12 tri's
in 2006, I will have plans to do 3 ironmans; IMAZ, IMUSA, and IMFLA; plus whatever else I can fit in. My goal this year is 15 total.
What I do to pay the bills: Software Engineer
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: AmyBeth, Branson, Brody, and Maddy
Short term triathlon goals: 2006 will be my ironman year
Long term triathlon goals: to continue to love it...
Fantasy triathlon goals: kona once before I die
Three favorite albums: Doors - Absolutely LIVE
Metallica - The Black ALbum
John Denver - Greatest Hits
Favorite book: On The Road - Jack Kerouac
Chocolate: it's ok
Garlic: great on just about anything
Blue Cheese: great on burgers and salads
For breakfast, I usually have: whatever is in the frig
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: pizza and beer
My best triathlon advice is: just do it... treat each as a training day.
My best non-triathlon advice is: just do it... treat each as a training day.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: It was 1985, I was 23, and I wasn't thinking about anything. I ran the USTS Baltimore Olympic Length Triathlon. Scott Molina won. I busted my ass and had a great time. I absolutely loved the swim part. The best part was the beer truck at the finish line. Back then, Bud Light was the sponser.
Everything I need to know I learned from: the school of hard knocks
