A few years ago Max was facing his 40th birthday, spending most of his time on the couch. His last athletic achievement was a 1-mile run in 6th grade and hadn’t ventured outdoors in decades.
Through a rather unremarkable, but consistent chain of events, he has found an athlete inside, and has become a competitive triathlete and adventurer.
Most recent adventure was originally planned as an epic gravel bike ride, a minimalist multi-day traverse of Spain along the route of Camino de Santiago, the historic pilgrimage that leads to the shrine of the apostle James in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia.
However, the spiritual nature of the Camino overtook the physical aspects, and changed the course of the whole ride, and perhaps Max's outlook on life, work, adventures and finding balance.
