I have competed in 1 half marathon and one full marathon, and on Sept .5 ,I will be doing my first triathlon.

Just so everyone knows Don Beachcomber is the name of my alter ego. I have spent most of my life at the beach, Huntington Beach Ca. or Carlsbad Ca. I used to do a lot of surfing and sailing and just hanging out at the beach, I also enjoy a good rum drink like a mai tai or a zombie, so Don Beachcomber seams like a good name to use for my alter ego.

I do work on rare occasions I am a Realtor here in Las Cruces New Mexico, given the state of the economy and the housing market the last couple of years,you could say that I am semi retired. So when I am not not selling houses I spend my time working out, walking, biking and swimming. I hope some day soon to get back to the beach!!

Hi Don, thanks for adding me as a friend here :) As I mentioned, I"m originally from Alamogordo so I know the area you are in currently quite well.  My grandma and grandpa were also Realtors for hundreds of years it seems! I Alamo you'd probably say they were the most well known for a time :)  Anyway, good to meet you here and keep on running!
