SCIENCE That word scares some people, since it wasn't their strength in school. I loved science! I was that annoying "WHY" child that wanted to know why the sky was blue, where the waves came from, how plants grew from a seed in the ground... I still don't know all the answers and I doubt I ever will, but my quest to improve our understanding of the world we live in has driven me for years, whether its how to help someone struggling with a major health challenge, coaching someone to improve their speedskating technique or how to train to win a world championship in bike racing. Understanding how it all works can dramatically improve your life... that is if the scientist in me can explain it to you in terms you can understand.
