I take great pride in being a renaissance man; almost everything is interesting and I believe anyone can figure out almost anything. So whether it's growing a garden, building a house, or writing a paper, I'm up for the challenge. I love projects and almost always have one on the go (with four or five more queued up behind).
I'm very active, although somewhat accident prone. Not too many broken bones, but lots of major sprains. Ok, some broken bones, too. You can find me running through the hills, biking the country roads, sailing around the coastline, bombing through the mountains on a mtn bike, etc etc etc. I live for that stuff. I spent many years racing bicycles which has slowly migrated into competitive running. I love both, but there's something great about the intensity of running.
All the usual stuff: friends and family are important, I like a night in sometimes, good wine and food, I value my work, yada yada yada.
What is important for me: You are educated. Not necessarily university, but you can carry a thoughtful and articulate conversation. And you are athletic. I'd like to go on bike trips through Europe and hikes on the weekend.
Most people say they are laid back or easy going. I'm not. I am ambitious. I've done a lot with my time on this planet so far and plan on doing lots more. I'd love to have someone join me for the ride. And take me on some of their adventures, too.
If I'm interested in you, I will read your profile. From start to finish. You heard it here first - some of us DO read these things.
You've made it this far. Still interested? Don't be shy. Say hello.
