How'd you catch the triathlon bug? As a my work requires me to not only travel but stay put for 1-2yrs, I wanted a positive hobby for off hours – with absolutely no run/bike/swim experience I signed up for IM Austin 70.3 hoping triathlon would be a good substitute for my racing upbringing (Motocross / Road Racing 10+yrs).

What's your favorite workout? Monaghetti Run Set (ascending and descending intervals) and MAF (maximum aerobic function) tests.

Do you have a favorite race or triathlon memoryCrossing the finish line at IM Florida, and being congratulated by my wife and son.

What races do you have planned for the seasonPuerto Rico 70.3, St. George 70.3, Florida IM. 

What do you do when you're not training? I like to spend time with my family and try to keep up with my boy skiing.

What's something people may not know about youIn college I owned and operated a bicycle company where I designed and fabricated custom bicycles - most were to accompany street rods or choppers in Oregon, Washington and Californian. One of the more memorable moments was a bike build for the Children’s Cancer Association which was auctioned on the Nelson and Terry Morning Show – Portland OR.
