Off-Day ActivityTaking my son to play in the park/ride his bike/walk in the woods

I grew up in CT/VT... went to college at Boulder.... Moved to Tahoe after that to be a ski bum and now live and work in NYC. I was always a skier/mountain biker/hiker etc, but living in NYC made it harder to do those things so I found Triathlon 5 years ago. Currently I’m on the Every Man Jack triathlon squad (sponsored by GU, which in my opinion is not a conflict of interest with your products). I became vegan a few years ago due to competing in triathlons and cannot overstate how big an effect it had on my training and overall well being. Additionally, my son was diagnosed with moderate autism and a gluten free diet has been instrumental in helping him develop and learn/think more clearly. I have used your products quite often because of this, and think they are fantastic! The last 2 years have been a bit of a struggle with 2 bike crashes and overcoming injuries, but I’m on the upswing for next season now! I have 2 young children and a wife that take up most of my time these days but we are weekend warriors and get out for lots of adventures together.
