Joel—the guy busting the sweet air above—is on our people potential team. This pic was snapped at Mt. Seymour in North Vancouver, which is his go-to local mountain because the park rocks. He just accepted a challenge to ride 99 days this season—!

How do you define full-on?
Focus and commitment.

What do you do/have you done full-on?
I live to board! I hit the mountain 83 times last year—including 33 days in a row—and spent time riding in BC, the US, Spain, Andorra, France and Italy. In past years I’ve also snowboarded in Austria, and the majority of the US as well, all while holding down a full-time job (in other words, being a weekend warrior). I’ve got plans to go to Japan next year (it will be my second trip there), South America in 2015, and to Antarctica to split board in five to seven years. I like to pretend I’m a sponsored rider except all these trips actually come out of my bank account.

Why do/did you love it?
Nature, friends, beauty, peacefulness, adventure, travel, high fives, imagination, creativity, adrenaline and, most importantly, freedom and connection to the community and the planet.

Tess works with our team of awesome online community educators. She says she's loving her “sweet, sweet sweaty pits” in this photo taken at the Chicago marathon earlier this month.

How do you define full-on?
Full-on is the thing that makes your heart beat faster, gives you tunnel vision, gets you up in the morning and keeps you awake at night.

What do you do/have you done full-on?
I am a full-on runner. On any given day of the week, you can find me in my beloved Newtons, ticking off mile after mile. I’ve run 11 marathons in eight cities (from Paris to Portland) on two continents and have run two out of the (now six) world majors. Plans are in place to take on the other four in the next five years. I live for Wednesday nights on the track and 4:00am wake up calls, and there hasn’t been a start line that I haven’t been happy to see.

Why do/did you love it?
Finish lines are what get me up in the morning. For me, there’s no better way to discover what you’re made of than meeting yourself on the road. Running has become my best friend, confidant and life coach. Besides, it’s cheaper than therapy.
