I am a forester who lives in Caratunk, Maine (population 60 in the winter, 120 in the summer). I was lucky enough to get to work with my best friend, Bailey for 10 years before we had to say goodbye to him. We miss you so much buddy.
Caratunk is nestled on the east side of the Kennebec River and it, along with the towns of The Forks (pop 35) and West Forks (pop 47), are the hub of whitewater rafting and other recreational activities in the summer. In the winter, people come to snowmobile, cross country ski, snow shoe, or drink at one of the 7 bars scattered amongst the three towns.
Although my vocation is forestry, I truly found my passion in triathlon and endurance sports. I ran my first marathon in 2005, and completed my first triathlon in 2009. I finished Ironman Lake Placid in 2011 and am in love with long distance endurance sports. I created this blog to follow my triathlon training, tell some stories, and maybe help inspire and motivate people to get outside and keep moving, every day.
