About Me: Started out as a cyclist but was drawn to triathlons after volunteering at two Reston Triathlons. So I bought a pair of running shoes and a skimpy Speedo (ewww) in 2005. I thought I'd have difficulty with the swim. Not true, it turns out I'm ok in the water but I can't run even if I my life depended on it. Trying some different things but I'm not anywhere close to where I want to be.
What I do to pay the bills: Director of Search and SEO at Revolution Health Group
Who defends the ranch when I'm out training: My wife, two kids, and buddy and shaggy (my schnoodles)
Short term triathlon goals: This isn't about competition ... this is about your knees
Long term triathlon goals: Make the pain stop
Fantasy triathlon goals: Become competitive again
Three favorite albums: "Aja" by Steely Dan
"The Central Park Concert" by The Dave Matthews Band
"The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" by Genesis
Favorite book: Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse
Favorite movie: The Princess Bride, Cinema Paradiso
Chocolate: YES! The darker, the better
Garlic: I like it but my wife would prefer me to pass.
Blue Cheese: absolutely. What else do you drench your Buffalo Wings in?
For breakfast, I usually have: A banana and a bowl of cereal and some Starbucks coffee. The cereal should be a mixture of at least Cheerios and Oatmeal Squares though three different cereals is preferrable.
After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Indian food (after training or not ... it's always my favorite food)
My best triathlon advice is: Save yourself for the run
My best non-triathlon advice is: Don't let it happen, make it happen.
What was I thinking when I signed up for my first race: I am so psyched!
Everything I need to know I learned from: Working for terrible bosses.
My deepest, darkest secret is: heh heh ... yeah right
