It's 2015. As 2014 ended I decided not to look forward to the new year, but the new adventure that it represented. I've already started some parts of that adventure. February I bought a Jeep Wrangler, March I ran the Spartan Sprint, and the Warrior Dash in April.
I'd like to find someone to share some experiences and adventures with. Spend some time on the water, go zip lining, hiking. Maybe head off some weekend just to get away. I'm looking for someone to inspire me. Ideally someone who will always make me realize that she can do better. Someone who, every day, makes me WANT to win her again. Not with words, but with her attitude and actions.
Although I'm looking for someone to be with, I am Daddy, first and foremost to an awesome 10 year old boy. I'm interested in meeting someone who understands that. My son is my favorite person and my favorite source of entertainment. I am very active in his school and volunteer for multiple events. I work out at least five times per week. I take Tae Kwon Do classes and help teach in my son's class- the kids are a riot and keep me feeling young. In May 2014 I earned my 3rd degree black belt. One fun part of that test was breaking bricks.
A few years ago I did the Richard Petty Driving Experience. The only downside was they wouldn't let me go any faster than 140. :( I'd like to do it again in some place like Daytona or another superspeedway so I can go faster.
I'm not looking for someone who looks at the glass as half-full or half-empty. I would look at the glass and think of what will refill it.
I've worked for the Federal Government for more than 20 years - civilian and active duty military. I'm fortunate to have a stable job with lots of flexibility. One of the best things about my job is that I get to work from home most of the time.
I have done some writing as a creative outlet. I've published one short story in a small anthology and have a draft novel I've been editing.
Here are some of the other standard bits of info:
Food: Love seafood and italian. I'm also always open to a good Japanese Steakhouse
Movies: A mix. Argo, The Avengers, Braveheart.
TV: Some of my favorite shows are Castle, NCIS (Love Abby), and Big Bang Theory. Funny thing is that I catch them mostly on reruns/syndication.
