ENDURANCE SPORTS

swim fotoIn the past five years endurance sports have become a huge part of my life.  They occupy a lot of my time and mental space and thus have had a big impact on my creative work as a composer, improviser, and interpreter.  I mostly compete in triathlons as well as trail run races and mountain bike races. I'm also starting to just make up my own adventures. I’m not very fast, but I have a great time out there.  The training and racing has changed my life and perspective on the world in many fundamental and important ways.  Below is a list of some of the races and adventures I’ve completed in the last few years, with the distance of the race and my time.
