I'm a mid to back of the pack triathlete that can't pass up a good trail run or a swim. Mainly self taught (where I grew up we didn't have anywhere close by that offered lessons and I mainly swam in the lakes and rivers), I did take some lessons to help refine my stroke thru the local YMCA once I decided I really wanted to complete triathlons and learn to swim a bit better.
Other interest include whitewater and flatwater kayaking, cycling, running, ice hockey and I'm willing to try pretty much any sport. Personally I'm an Architect and co-owner of a small firm.
My goal with athletics is to hopefully inspire others to a more active lifestyle, that small steps can lead to something more and generally try to be positive towards fitness. I routinely sweep local trail races and make sure all participants make it off the trails safely.
