This keeps me busy, but Ross and I share a passion for applying science to the everyday athlete, and this blog is the result of that.
My sporting background is mixed, starting with soccer thru university, then moving to running (Two Oceans twice and a 2:48 marathon PB) and finally cycling.I am a qualified USA Cycling Level II coach, and ride semi-competitively with the xXx Racing-Athletico cycling team here in Chicago.
