About Me
Persuing FIRE
Still trying to decide what I'm going to be when I grow up while simultaneously planning my retirement.
Training is haphazard, inconsistent and life has a habit of getting in the way sometimes.
But I like running - especially when it's over :-)
Inside this wreck of a human being is a runner trying to get out.
Retired woodworker, wannabe guitarist and novice Cactus grower.......well a man has got to have his hobbies and I can't run 24 hours a day now can I ??
