The ME page. If you’re here, you most likely already know something about me. Either that, or you are up late randomly clicking links…
This site contains my ramblings, and occasional spraying about my latest adventures. Why Off-the-Couch? Mostly because I am a workaholic and spend far too many hours sitting in a desk chair typing on a keyboard (like I am now). I’m not the most gifted athlete- solid middle-of-the-pack of old fat guys, but I do have an innate ability to pull off some pretty awesome adventures with little to no training or preparation. This is not always the best way to go about things, but it suits my work schedule.
Having said all that, in the last year I have been attempting something akin to training. I have a semi-regular yoga routine that has greatly helped with my IT band syndrome, and I was able to ride my bike the day after even my biggest races. This was definitely not the case in 2011. But I still don’t think I’ve ever done an interval workout… For 2013, I’m going to try to *really* train and see where that gets me. I guess I should figure out what an interval training session is.
Herein you will find topics such as Mountain Biking (racing and random epic rides), food, travel, and my trademarked-patent-pending “People of Talent” series along with whatever else I find intriguing at the time.
Get off the couch.
Have an adventure!
