I am your average bear. I have a job that I go to every day. I have amazing friends and a wonderful family. I am married to my best friend and we have the best dog in the world..and then we have another dog who we are training to be the second best dog in the world. It's a work in progress. In my spare time I am either sitting on the couch watching some ridiculous trash or training for the next big triathlon...which has morphed into growing a crotch parasite in my belly. It's tough work, but somebody's gotta do it.
