Post-Race DrinkSaline, Intravenously. Or a beer. Chocolate milk if I'm driving
Off-Day ActivityWalk with my wife

Lettered in tennis and soccer in college, bought a mountain bike in '91 to take a mental break from competitive tennis. Raced mountain bikes. Started running. Ran Boston a few times. Most recently added the swim. Did a sprint. Then a half. Then a full. Missed Kona by one spot in my first full. Made it to Kona on my third try. I'm still very much learning the swim...but I'm anxious to learn!
My day job? I'm an architect. A husband. An empty-nester dad who's playing while the birdies are flying.
