Why I race: It’s honest feedback. Over time, the results reflect how much I’ve put in compared to other motivated people. It’s about persistence, cumulative effort, pushing through personal barriers, and not giving in to the parts of the self that want to quit. It forces us to either dig deep, or go home and face up to not investing enough. So it’s great motivation to get really fit, and it’s pretty good psychotherapy too.
Memorable Cycling Moment: Crossing the finish line at the Garrett County Gran Fondo. Savage Century; feeling brutalized and deeply satisfied at the same time.
Likes: Nature, especially mountains and sunny beaches, thunderstorms, food & cooking (and yes, Mexican!), sailing, sleeping, kittens.
Dislikes: Destruction of nature, humans.
