What I'm doing now...
If I've said NO to you recently it is because I'm focused on the things below. Nothing personal, I just want to continue to get stuff done. Live like no other, so you can someday live like no other.
Priorities (in order of importance):
- Family -- evenings/weekends are for spending time with my wife and four girls... if I don't seem available assume I'm busy doing something fun with them!
- Dadbod -- working towards losing weight to be an active dad for my gaggle of girls. Currently
240lbs224lbs, need to get down to 200, because #dadbod. Been really enjoying Fitbod, Strava, Final Surgeand Headspace app -- for gym workouts, running/swimming/cycling tracking, triathlon coaching plan, and meditation respectively.

- Reading List -- I'm a reader. I highlight, underline, and scribble in the margins. I buy physical books and read them. I like the feel of paper and the progress indicator of a bookmark marking my journey.
Life has gotten complicated over the last couple years with the global pandemic. These projects are now paused.
