Mr. D'Velo's Dad- Gary is crushing it right now. He will grind up those Sierra granite mountains into a fine powder...

Wow, that's great, so many training hours! So I'm curious, what do you do work-wise that gives you such freedom to train? :)

Marco Fanelli said...

Cynthia- I am very fortunate to have an extremely flexible schedule currently. I develop computer simulation software, and when I work, I do 95% of it from home. I say "when I work" because I've done it part time for the last few years and there are periods where I don't work at all. I spent the first 17 years of my career putting in long hours and traveling tons. Climbing the ladder, so to speak. Then a couple years ago, I switched roles (partially) with my wife so that her job takes priority. Now I do most of my riding during the day when the kids are at school. In fact, off for a ride right now...
