50, Shareholder at Baker Donelson
FAMILY: Wife Abby Conley, 3 kids (Hannah, Chase and Mia), 2 step kids (Dottie and Jack), and a cat (KitKat)
RECENT RACE: IRONMAN Chattanooga 70.3 and Memphis In May Olympic and Sprint Triathlons
I LOVE TRIATHLONS: I love the challenges between body and mind, especially during an endurance event, along with meeting some phenomenal people along the way.
MUST-HAVE GEAR: Garmin Fenix 6
FAVORITE FITNESS ACCOMPLISHMENT: Finishing IRONMAN Florida and IRONMAN Chattanooga.
BEST-EATS: McEwen’s Osso Buco. I cannot wait for it to reopen after an incredibly long renovation.
MOST MEMORABLE RACE: Muir Woods Trail Marathon. At one point, you had the Pacific Ocean on one side while you could the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco skyline.
INDULGENCE: A Diet Coke after a long race.
UP NEXT: IRONMAN Memphis 70.3 in October and Cloudland Canyon 50K in December.
SPEED BUMP: A few months prior to IRONMAN Florida, I started having major Achilles problems that I feared would prevent me from racing. A combination of dry-needling, a great shoe fitting, and Superfeet inserts solved the problem and allowed me to race pain free.
BUCKET LIST: Grand Canyon Rim2Rim2Rim
PET PEEVE: People that walk or run on the bike-only lane at Shelby Farms.
DREAM DINNER COMPANION: Anthony Bourdain. He was a fascinating and very interesting person who by all perceptions had the perfect job, and his death by suicide was tragic in so many ways.
