My name is Jesse Carnes, and I am an endurance athlete based out of Missoula, Montana. My perspective on life is based on an education in fine arts, a job in the bicycle industry, and a passion for health, fitness, and the outdoors. I practice a 100% plant-based diet, which has been a huge part of my life and my training for several years. I reside in Missoula with my wife, Kailee, our cat, Abbey, and our dog – my trusty winter running partner – Kava.
This site serves to chronicle my adventures in training and racing, as well as recording my thoughts on whatever life happens to throw my way.
