Glenn(age 43) moved back to his home state Washington in 2001 after having spent eleven years working on Wall Street in New York City. Glenn has a great appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. He believes he is very fortunate to live in the Pacific Northwest, where there is an abundance of outdoor sports, and spends his free time training. Glenn feels adventure racing has helped him find and even surpass personal limits and that true potential is found only at the extreme of physical and mental endurance. Glenn is very active in his community: he volunteers at his childrens’school, served as the president of the PTA, is a master gardener, served on the advisory board of the local nature center, and is active in his church. He lives in Gig Harbor with his wife and five children.
