Who is Ted?

I'm the father of two beautiful daughters and an amazing wife. For fun, I enjoy the long hours of seemingly endless suffering that endurance sports (mostly running, cycling and triathlon)provide. During my "down time" I'm an avid beer snob and self-described gourmet chef (in other words I like to burn things on a stove or grill).

A dollar makes a difference


I've signed up for the Boulder Sunset Triathlon (Olympic Distance).  This event is organized by a group called "Your Cause Sports"  and they do something kind of unique with their races.  Each participating athlete selects an organization that they are racing for, and commits to fundraising on their behalf.  As part of the sign up process, athletes create a fundraising page to assist in collecting donations.  There are dozens of organizations that benefit from these events, and it's a simple way for triathletes to do something positive while participating in a race. This year, we learned that a close family friend and colleague was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, so I wanted to use my entry to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of her.  Anyone that would like to donate can do so through the link listed here.  I'm accepting any donation (even $1) and thank you in advance for your help.
