One of my passions is endurance sports. I took them up a few years ago and have had wonderful results. I've run all sorts of distances from the 5k to the full marathon and everything in between. The sense of accomplishment I get when running a marathon after having worked so hard to train for it is a powerful and satisfying feeling. I've done a few of them and am looking forward to more. I recently got into triathlons as well and did my first Half Iron Man this summer! I also enjoy traveling for races because they're a great excuse to go on vacation. I'd like to do more destination races in the near future. And just so you know, you don't necessarily have to be a runner but you must at least be understanding of the effort I need to put into the training to be successful.
I do a lot of things with my life besides that too. I'm a handy man thanks to my grandfather teaching me everything he knew about tools and woodworking. I know how to cook thanks to my mom but I'll never be as creative as her in the kitchen. I'm good at following recipes and enjoy trying new ingredients and techniques. I play just about every sport under the sun although I don't focus on any one. I like to do a little bit of everything. Variety is the spice of life!
My work is also going really well for me. I'm a civil engineer for a local company located downtown and I love my job. I've been gaining a lot of experience and am preparing to take the licensing exam soon. I have to take an big exam next summer so I'm not really looking forward to that but I'll get it done. My company is fantastic and my coworkers are really cool people. It's a great social environment so I couldn't ask for much more out of my career at this point.
I have an amazing and fun group of friends who I love hanging out with but I'm looking to find someone who I vibe with on a higher level. Hopefully this profile gives you a little taste of who I am but it really doesn't even scratch the surface. I'd like a chance to get to meet some new people and see if I can hit it off with somebody. I could really use a partner in my adventures!
