I am a forester who lives in Caratunk, Maine – we are a pretty small town with a population of about 30 in the winter and 100 in the summer.
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.
My vocation is forestry, and I am really an outdoor kid. I loved triathlon and endurance sports for a long time – I ran my first marathon in 2005, and completed my first triathlon in 2009. I finished Ironman Lake Placid in 2011 and 2013 and now really just like to be active mountain and fat biking, trail running, rafting, canoeing, and hiking.
I created this blog to follow my training, tell some stories, and maybe help inspire and motivate people to get outside and keep moving, every day.
