    nearly every day. I hit a plateau and ha d

    to change my eating habits to lose the

    next 75 pounds. My weight still

    fluctuates plus or minus 10 pounds, bu t

    I’ve kept the weight off for about seven

    years now by staying active and

    watching what I eat.”

    Burks has had many hobbies over the

    years, which have included playing

    guitar, tinkering with computers,

    photography and others.

    “My current hobby is cycling and

    trying to stay fit in general. I started ou t

    road cycling and commuting the short

    distance I have to work. I picked up a

    fat bike to commute in the winter and

    started riding mountain bike trails as

    well,” he says.

    “This past year, I started cycling on

    gravel roads (gravel grinding). Gravel

    roads are great because they can take

    you to places you would otherwise not

    visit and there are fewer cars to deal

    with. I’ve ridden in several races and

    challenges, including Iceman Cometh,

    Funk Bottoms Gravel Grinder,

    Michigan Mountain Mayhem, Lowell

    50 Gravel Grinder, Little Miami Dirty

    Dozen, Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen, and

    many others,” Burks says.

    “Me and a few guys like to create

    routes and abuse ourselves whenever w e

    have time free. We completed a 213

    mile-in-a-day road adventure this past

    summer, as well as many self-supporte d

    gravel grinders on hilly roads near

    Loudonville, Ohio,” he adds.

    On the homefront, Burks spends time

    with his family and gets out in nature.

    “My wife and I have been married 18

    years and we have a seven-year-old son .

    My wife is a runner and recently

    completed her first half marathon. My

    son loves to play Minecraft and harass

    our cats. The Toledo Metroparks are

    awesome, so you will find us at one of

    them at least once a week,” Burks says .

    For his efforts on the job, he won the

    Shining Star, an award given to

    outstanding UTMC employees.

    There’s little doubt why Burks was

    nominated for the award and to be

    featured in TechNation; he proves that

    when you set your sights on something ,

    you can achieve it.
