I love being outside and active. I've personally competed in everything from a 5k run to an Ironman triathlon. I've dabbled in mountain bike racing and hope to race my road bike a bit more these next few years, and give the sport of cyclocross a try as well.
My passion (and my job!) is to help others do the same.

During the warmer months (April-September) I lead a Friday evening no-drop ride from Cafe Velo. I
I hope to swim, bike, and/or run with you soon!
Since 2012, my Super Bowl Sunday has involved the Super Half Marathon / Game Day 5k in some way. In 2012 and 2013, I ran the half marathon. Last year, as I was recovering from one hip surgery and soon to find out that I needed another, I volunteered at the Jack Quinn's aid station.

Regarding my hip surgeries, I'm mostly recovered and am starting to walk/jog again. Hooray!
To catch up on that and maybe be a little inspired (that's the goal anyway), check out the interview I did with Scott Jones at Athlete On Fire.
And once high school cross country season…Continue

The first weekend in May has become the weekend for the Tri-Lakes Time Trial and a Gran Fondo, both sponsored by Cafe Velo. The local master's race team, Rotor Bike/CP Racing, a local masters race team, organizes the time trial, and based on the comments from participants it's one of the best organized around (if not the best.)
For anyone not familiar with the Time Trial format, it's a bike race against the clock. Riders are released from the start at specific intervals (in…Continue
