BioAstin gives me sustained natural energy throughout the day (more than I can ever use!), which allows me to train more and recover faster. It keeps at bay all those little aches throughout the body cause by long hours of training. It protects my skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation after long days spent outdoor, which is particularly important when living at altitude (where UV radiation is stronger).
Progression in the sport; pushing my limits and my comfort zone to learn about myself; seeing results after putting time, energy, and discipline into it; having a goal to work towards; and avoiding the desk!
Big rides in the Colorado mountains with a good crew, and long solitary open water swims in the ocean.
Before I moved to Colorado I was an avid waterman (and still am when I can). I love to kitesurf, windsurf, SUP, surf (really anything to do with water), and used to compete internationally in different disciplines.
I like to have a good time (in moderation), and am always up for a good laugh and a good beer.
