In the early 1950s, when Art got his first bicycle, his family lived in the last house on his street, which was then at the eastern edge of the city. Drawn to the mountains (which today mark that eastern boundary), Art hopped on that bicycle and started exploring. He has continued that journey through the New Mexico outdoors ever since. As a young man he ran competitively, played tennis, fished, skied and cycled. In the mid-1970s, like his father and his great-uncle before him, Art opened a sporting goods store, selling much of the same equipment he used. In the early 1980s he ran his first marathon. Today, in his 60s, Art continues to run, ride, swim and compete in many forms of outdoor recreation. In the last couple of years he has won his age group in the XTERRA World Championship triathlon in Hawaii and the Bolder Boulder 10K run.
