I have been all about bikes since I was a 11 year old when I ordered my first BMX bike (Dyno) from the back of BMX Plus magazine. Got my first road bike (Schwinn Letour) when I was 13 (still have it - it's my trainer bike). Fast forward 20 years when my wife (a former masters/competitive swimmer) first got the bug and started to race Tri's and eventually IM Madison in 2008. Fast forward again to 2013 when the bug to race hit me. I have always been a swimmer and biker, but my body dislikes running very much. I started with sprint Tri's and then back to back IM 70.3 in 2016/17 and then IM Madison in 2017 and IM Louisville in 2019 (no swim!). My official day job is working for Microsoft as a Technology Support Manager, my unofficial day job is Dad, biker, swimmer, coach, house fixer-upper, dog walker, dog feeder, chauffeur, and homework helper (this list is not exclusive).
