SUP n GO Race #4. Either smiling or gritting my teeth; perhaps both.
I am an advocate of outdoor play. I hope there are other like minded individuals who will join me in my call to action. Go Outside, People! I fear it is a dying past time; too many folks spend their free time taping out texts and staring at a screen. Ironically, if you are reading this, you are obviously reading a screen. Please be sure to negate this time with electronic-free outdoor time. I’ll do the same.
About Me: Mountain biking, standup paddle boarding, running, and surfing are just a few of the activities that are essential to my health, happiness, and mental well being. My husband and playmate is equally active. Together we have two children (9 and 6 years old*), 12 bikes, 2 standup paddle boards, 7 surfboards, 7 skateboards, 2 snowboards, a handful of windsurfers, and 1 Airstream trailer. (*Numerical data were updated 6/04/12)
I’ve been racing stand up paddleboards for over three years. I’ve toed the starting line of countless running races ranging from 5K to the marathon. I’ve done a handful of sprint and olympic distance triathlons as well as mountain bike races way back in the day. I am passionate about cyclocross. These are my people: lovers of bikes, serious athletes who do not take themselves seriously, and typically love beer and a good laugh, like myself.
I recently earned my masters degree in Biology and am looking for a part-time career that melds my love of biological science, past teaching experience, and the outdoors.
