I'm a 37yr old (and counting) lifelong athlete! I have been participating in sports like Football, Baseball, Basketball, and Track since elementary school. This trend continued through college in the form of intramural sports. In 2006 I turned my sports interests into martial arts. For 3 yrs I trained in mixed martial arts that consisted of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Traditional Boxing, Muai Thai Kickboxing, and Wrestling.
Since 2010, I have been doing triathlons, duathlons, running races, road races, and criteriums. Most recently have been focusing on Road Racing and Criteriums. I have a real passion for bikes (I have 8!) and do all the maintenance / mechanical work. The bikes range from high end TT bikes to several Road bikes (carbon / titanium) and a Fixie. I even stripped and repainted the fixie!
