Bio

I am a 44 year old Crossfit athlete, husband, and father. I work as a Systems Administrator for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and am proud to say I don't quite fit the mold for the typical 'computer geek' - at least physically thanks to Crossfit and Paleo-centric eating. And here I am today; registered for the Open for the third consecutive year, knowing I may not be Rich Froning or Chris Spealler, but that I am more than I was yesterday and will be more tomorrow than I am today. I am here to compete purely for myself, not because I think I can place in the top 60, top 100, or even top 1000, but because I know I can place somewhere. If I can inspire others to jump in and get healthy, then we all win.
