As a kid, at any given time, I was taking swim lessons, diving lessons, playing soccer, softball, skiing, or rowing crew. In college, the cross-country coach approached me in the dining hall and told me to show up for practice the next day. I had never really raced before, but it ended up being my thing for more than 10 years. After a bout of stress fractures, I picked up a road bike. These days I'm more comfortable on a bike than off. Give me single-track. Give me gravel. Give me pudding-smooth pavement. Also, triathlon, trail running, hiking, skiing, rock climbing, and boxing. I've been in Colorado for two years (by way of Indiana/Montana/Tennessee/New York) and I absolutely love it. Challenge me to do something that involves being outdoors in the mountains, and I'm almost definitely in.
