Hohns moved to Colo. from Kentucky in 2014. He had been living in the Steamboat Springs area of Colo.
“Dan was so vibrant,” Heath Gollnick said, according to The Denver Post. “He had this huge smile and energy that just made you happy. It was contagious to everyone.”
Hohs used endurance sports as a way for him to handle his bipolar disorder.
“Endurance sports have provided me with the motivation to improve all aspects of my life, deeply reflect on who I am, and most importantly, learn that I can do what I once thought was impossible,” he wrote, according to The Denver Post.
