I am a full-time athlete at the USA Olympic Training Center in Colorado. I train over 35 hours a week in the sport of Modern Pentathlon and currently ranked #3 in the US (I've been between 1st and 3rd for the past 9 months). As a result eat a lot of fruit! After living in Cali and having fresh local fruits all year it's hard to readjust to imported bananas and other not so fresh or ripe looking fruit, but the opportunity to train here and work towards a future Olympic games is amazing.
My wife and I have been Veg for over 20 years each and started doing "the raw thing" 8 years ago. As athletes our performances have only improved and it's hard to believe more people don't live like this. We are the proud parents of little girl who we delivered ourselves, and has been as healthy and big as can be!
In the past I've made my living as a bassoonists in orchestras, massage therapy, track & XC coach, preschool teacher, bicycle courier and more.

Congrats. Let me know when/where the wedding is and I'll bet there if you want me to come. I'd love to come.
