Most rewarding aspect triathlon: I have come to love training and wonder why it took so long to figure this out.

Current favorite ride: Sunset Beach to Laguna Beach on PCH.
Current favorite run: Bolsa Chica Wetlands trails in Huntington Beach.

Music: It's really not this specific (as in this or nothing), but I like guitar based melodic stuff with minor key and/or angular sounding riffs, effected vocals, and layered with plenty of old school synth sounds. You can throw as much of the mix as you can into a filter if you want, especially the drums. Examples: The Doves, The Life & Times. There is plenty more outside of this I like too.
Movies: The Departed, Goodfellas, Tropic Thunder.
