All about shaggy

As a young lad I practically lived on my BMX bike. For years my friends and I spent almost every spare hour finding things to ride on. There was not a set stairs, picnic table, flood canal, or sidewalk in Deer Park that we did not leave our tire tracks on.

Around age thirteen a friend persuaded me to give up bmx and start logging miles on a road bike. I rode a few local charity rides and the MS150 before discovering the mountain bike.

I rode mountain bikes for years and all over the campus of SHSU but only made it to the trails of Huntsville state park a few times.

When Dr. Josh moved to California I loaned him my Gary Fisher, and I bought a Trek 5200 road bike from one of his friends. I started riding with the Woodlands Cycling Club and logged hundreds of miles, until I learned of Triathlons in late 2006. I raced three sprint distance triathlons in 2007, and I was hooked...

... at least I was hooked, until I watched Dr. Josh & NB at the Texas Dare Adventure Race which was much more exciting than triathlons.

If Adventure Racing is half as much fun as it looks, I'm in.
