I enjoy the outdoors and try to find myself there as much as possible. I like to run, hike and bike (need a new bike). I like to walk and run many different parks and canals through the Denver area. I camp, fish but I do not hunt. On the list of things I want to start doing is kayaking (sea) and paragliding. I can toil away in my yard or wonder in town looking for things and places I have not seen before. I have taken to mud runs lately and just finished the Spartan race in Colorado Springs in May. I ran the Merrell mud run in last year. I had hoped to get to more events over the summer but was unable to. I hope I can fit in more this year.
I am perpetually interested in almost everything. I enjoy a good conversation, or a silly one, over wine, beer or coffee. I can enjoy both a crowed and loud event and relaxing quietly someplace. I find that I am always trying to learn something new. I am currently working on the piano and speaking French. I enjoy cooking and finding new recipes to try but admittedly this is less fun without someone to cook with or for.
So, this has been my attempt to describe myself without using any humor. I've had the funny profile before... It took me days to write it because I was always laughing so hard, I had to take breaks. But no one else laughs. Humor is hard enough because much of it is based on timing, tone and pitch of voice, and people take everything you say so seriously. It just doesn't translate well in this place. Without really knowing someone, some humor is even more difficult to get right. Dry humor and slight witty sarcasm for example.
