“A typical day for me starts with a workout to get my blood flowing. I find the greatest motivation when I’m signed up to compete in a race, with all preparation inspiring me to beat my personal best from previous years. Finally, I mix up my routine, or else I get bored. For example, I alternate between P90X with cross-training in prep for sprint triathlons.”

Workout Playlist
Bon Jovi, U2, Guns N’ Roses, Creed, Greenday, and the Killers

When I don’t feel like working out, I …
… play basketball with my kids or with friends.
