What are some of your interests outside of the office?
I enjoy running, quite a bit I must say, and have completed several half marathons over the last few years with the most notable being two I ran in the last year: Behobia in Spain, and San Antonio, TX where I broke my PR.
Traveling to different places around the world, meeting different cultures, and doing something exotic seems like a lot of fun too. Completing the 4-day challenge to climb the 26-mile Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru in August of last year was very demanding, but equally rewarding, especially when I reached Dead Woman’s Pass (Warmiwanusqa) at the elevation of ~4,200 meters (13,780 ft). That peak took my breath away, literally.
For this year, I set myself a challenge of completing my first full marathon and running a minimum of 100 km (62 miles)/month.
Wow – that is impressive! It sounds like you are planning on hitting the ground running in more ways than one. Welcome to the team Mike.
