Energy Food Guru: Adam Spector

Adam Spector

Spector, a 38-year-old native of Carvers­ville, Pennsylvania, has had some pretty great jobs. Right after college, he farmed fish in Boulder, then for two years he owned the Barking Dog Cafe, in Lyons, Colorado. But he wasn't satisfied. "Running a coffee shop is seven days a week, starting at 4 A.M.," says Spector. "And the trout farm was a 24-hour-a-day job." Things are a little different at energy-food manufacturer Honey Stinger, where the onetime mountain-bike racer is now the national sales manager. He often commutes on 14 miles of singletrack, and, come winter, Spector and his fellow employees frequently take their lunch breaks in the morning with a quick skin up the resort. "Making powder turns with a group of friends is a great way to start the day."
