Dave Weeks

When and where are you the happiest?

I am happiest when I am around water. I love swimming, canoeing, running down the beach with my shepherds, or any humans who are game for adventure. There is something playful, elemental, meditative, being simply here, water is just great fun.

What is your definition of fitness?

Being able to play soccer with my grandchildren.

What do you love about Traverse City?

We have beaches and water as blue as the Caribbean; the culture of Aspen; what a great place to live! And there’s yoga!

What is your favorite virtue?

Kindness. My mantra is a loving kindness meditation.

What is your definition of health?

Most days you choose the kale-tofu wrap, but some days you choose the chocolate ice cream.
