More About Me

  • I enjoy many kinds of outdoor activities, and admire those who hike, climb, kayak, …, to explore the great lands everywhere.

  • My longest race distance I've finished so far was an IRONMAN 70.3 race in Racine, WI in July 2015. Definitely an experience mixing with fun, obstacles, and unforgettable moments!
