The community, the feeling of a fast beating heart and even the soreness and breathlessness that come with a good ride are all factors that motivate Kwad. His hope is to push others beyond their comfort zone of their current physical prowess. He firmly believes that we only change for the better when we are challenged and that comfort only serves us well for so long. His ride models that belief. You will leave feeling sore, sweaty, challenged but with a smile on your face.
Off the bike, Kwad can be found lifting heavy things and putting them down or walking the halls of the hospital at night as an Internal Medicine resident. With his time off he can often be found in a foreign country avoiding deep waters, as he cannot swim- but finding something tall to climb, hike or jump off. He maintains his performing arts roots by playing guitar and singing in a choir his spare time.
