Over the years of competing, I had a chiropractor that I would see when I was in L.A., one for San Diego county, one for the Big Island and one for Colorado. Those doctors taught me enough about my own body that I took the next logical step and enrolled in chiropractic college. While at Southern California University of Health Sciences, I made the Dean’s List every term and graduated cum laude.
Nowadays, I try to do what that first doctor did for me: help people to get out of pain quickly and teach them a little bit about how their body works.
Even though I no longer have a chance to win races, I still compete around town in any race I can find—running, mountain biking, triathlons, paddleboarding, open water swims. My competitive instinct may have dulled a bit, but now I get to enjoy being active with my family. If you don’t see me in the office, look for me paddleboarding or running with my wife and son.
