My name is Barrett Dodds and I am an avid outdoorsman who specifically pursues mountain biking and climbing. Currently I am on a journey to train for the Trans-Provence Enduro Mountain bike race over the next 6-7 months. Please follow me as I blog about how I am going to achieve fitness, diet and exercise, as well as biking goals and try to prepare for a HUGE adventure in the French mountains.

When I’m not on an adventure outside, I am in the Emergency Department at a large hospital in Greenville, SC working as a Registered Nurse. This is my first full-time job and I’m just starting, so transitioning from the calm, relaxing aura of the woods to the chaotic and increasingly stressful nature of the hospital over the next several months will be a challenge in itself, especially since I’m working night shift.

Hang on son, things are about to get gnarly.
