My name is Kent. I am a Father of 2 – by far family is my top priority. In my free time I work in a land of cubicles. In the time that is left, I try to stay in shape by going as fast as I can on my bike or on my feet.
I live in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada which has a ton of great places to run and ride and lots of nearby racing options. It also has a waterfall nearby that you may have heard of!
I used cycling as a means of staying in shape for years, but found that after we had kids it was harder to get out for a long ride. I took up running a few years ago as something I could after the kids went to bed. This soon led to racing in a few 5K’s, then half-marathons, and soon I was hooked! I also compete in duathlons when time permits. Someday I will learn how to swim efficiently so I can get into triathlons. Over the past year I have shifted my focus from running on the road, to trails. I have also begun my long term goal of running a 100 mile ultra. I finished 2 50km trail ultras in 2012 and have plans to tick off a couple of 50 milers in 2013. Running has gone from something I did as an alternative to multi-hour bike rides, to having the same time demands!
