I am a food enthusiast, triathlete, obstacle course racer, husband, father, PhD Student at Colorado State University and a Student Affairs Professional for the University of California, Merced. Since I have many different interests I created this blog to capture my musings and advice across many topics.
Fitness: I started running to lose weight for my wedding and ran my first marathon in 2012. Since then I have transitioned to triathlon competition and among other races, have completed one 140.6 mile full Ironman race. I plan to write race recaps and information about training with varied other commitments.
Foodie: On my travels I try to visit as many restaurants on a list I created from the many suggestions from the Food Network and Travel Channel. I write reviews of all the places on my list and many others. I will also often write about my adventures in cooking.
Fatherhood: As a father of two girls and a dog, life is never dull. It is a complicated task balancing the needs of children while still training, working, and restaurant touring. I will write about my experiences learning to be responsible for the well-being of little humans.
Education: I am both a PhD student and an educator at an institution of higher education. I write about both of those experiences and how we can better educate the next generation.
