I have a broad range of interests whether it is running, sports or hiking in the great outdoors. I am a member of the organization, New York Road Runners. I run anywhere from 3 to 5 times depending on what I am training for. I run. Alot. I have completed 5 NYC marathons and will be completing another one in 2014. I hope to shoot for sub 4 hours in the marathon.
I am that guy that wants to live life to the fullest and enjoy every waking moment. I go out on the weekends or run races to balance out my 9 to 5 work week and maintain a certain level of sanity. I always find time for my friends and family, but it seems I still have some time to spare. I am a genuine and generous person; I care not because I should, but because I do and I try to help others as needed.
MY FAVORITE QUOTES/SONGS:
For Every Runner, There Is A Constant Struggle Between Pain & Pleasure Between Good Days And Bad. Between Love And Hate. - New Balance campaign slogan
"To be a consistent winner means preparing not just for one day, one month, or even one year - but for a lifetime." ---BILL RODGERS
If A equals success, then the formula is A= X + Y+ Z; where X is work, Y is play and Z is keep your Mouth Shut. ---- Albert Einstein
The unexamined life is not worth living. ---- Socrates
To give anything less than your best is to sacrafice the gift. ---- Steve Prefontaine
Contemplating a career change away from computers and IT to something along the lines of sports rehabilitation, espeically ART (Active Release Techniques), a form of myofascial release and trigger point therapy. This would allow me to not only help other individuals who are athletes and weekend warriors function to their best potential, but also allow me to be the best I can be and utilize my passions of running and my expertise in science.
Favorite TV Shows: 24, Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, The Last Ship, Falling Skies
Music: Linkin Park, Disturbed, Evanescence, Papa Roach, DJ Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold. But, my favorite genres are techno, trance, dance and rock.
Food: American, Italian, Thai, Chinese, Sushi (Japanese), Indian, Mexican (as you can see, I am not picky)
In addition, I am always thinking about ways on making my life even more fulfilling in all aspects, especially socially. I know the right person for me is out there - it is my job to find her.
And whether or not I should change my career and pursue something else that would enable me to less stressed.
It made me realize that sometimes you need to go through the depths of hell to get to heaven and what doesn't kill you will only make you stronger.
Someone who is always striving to be the best they can be and one who thinks they can handle being depended on yet, be independent at the same time.
One who isn't afraid to laugh but also can also be serious at the same time. Someone who likes to confront challenges head on rather than running away from it.
And by all means message me if you want to, I will write back I promise!!!
