About Me: Athlete my whole life and had settled on Soccer as the lifelong sport until a severe knee injury on Memorial Day 2005. After that, my Surgeon suggested Cycling and Swimming - Now I Race bikes with WWVC and race short distance tri's with very little run training.
What I do to pay the bills: Actuary

After a long day of training, my favorite meal is: Anything - and lots of it - Shrimp, Fish, Pasta, Chicken, Tons of Veggies.
My best triathlon advice is: "Go Fast", "Smooth is Faster", "You gotta get everything going in the engine room, then squeeze as much speed as you can from what comes out"
