I'm a thinker, a dreamer and a romantic. I go after what interests me with a vengeance and I strive for excellence, both in intellectual pursuits (which culminated in a Ph.D.) and in my favourite sport, distance running. I've run 50 road races including six marathons, and I ran the Boston Marathon twice, in 2009 and 2010. In 2014, I broke into the world of ultramarathoning: a 50km race in June, and my first 50-miler on Oct. 12. I like pushing my limits.
So now that I've done my best to intimidate you (;-P) , let me say that I'm also gentle and kind and a good listener -- hey, in fact it's my work. I do enjoy guys who are a little more raw and physical than I am (so don't worry if you don't have a Ph.D, lol!). I would like you if you would enjoy going for a run on the Mountain, laughing over a cup of hot chocolate, talking about life by candlelight, or exploring. . . well, exploring lots of things together, let's leave that one up to your imagination. "Imagination is more important than knowledge" (Einstein), love that quote.
On a more prosaic level . . .
My fave movies: "Chariots of Fire", "LOTR" trilogy, "Star Wars" original trilogy (hey, remember my age!), "Amadeus", "A River Runs Through It", "Groundhog Day", "The Matrix", "Avatar", "Terminator 2", "City of Ember", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", "National Treasure" . . . and lots of movies where the main character grows and transforms in some way.
My fave music: Switchfoot, The Beatles, U2, J.S. Bach . . .
My fave books: "Dandelion Wine", "The Martian Chronicles" (Bradbury); "Pilgrim at Tinker Creek" (Annie Dillard); "Walden" (Thoreau); II Corinthians (Paul); "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish" (Seuss); "Nonsense Novels" (Leacock), poems of William Wordsworth . . .
Guys I'm Looking To Meet
Despite my mature age, I like guys who are young . . . and besides being young, you should be fit and in good shape. My preferred age range is actually 20-28; truth be told, even a bit younger than that. I know I'm a lot older, but this is the group I sync well with physically and even mentally, since I enjoy learning and discovering new things and can be pretty wide-eyed with wonder myself. I enjoy playing the mentor and teacher role and even, occasionally, the "Dad" role, to an appreciative youth.
My dream guy, physically? Well, you'd be the same race as I am; about my height (5'10") or shorter; a clean-cut guy with a smooth defined swimmer's build and long, lean muscles. But it would also be important to me that you'd have a good brain in your head (and know how to use it), a friendly and compassionate heart, a good sense of humour, confident, deep eyes, and a killer smile! (I can always dream, can't I?) LOL! Don't worry if you're not 10 on 10: I know I'm far from perfect either. "Ah, but a man's reach exceed his grasp/ Or what's a heaven for?"
Hey, hit me up if you'd like to go for a run together. . . to spend some time philosophizing in a downtown Second Cup. . . or if you'd like to get to know me more privately, on a physical level. I'm ready to play.
