Around the Sun

Well, 30 has come and gone. It was not exactly the year I was expecting when it came to my endurance adventures but it was better than I planned socially and professionally.

You win some you lose some.

The past few weeks have been very busy and there are more posts to come about that. But I’ve also spent some time looking back. And while I wish my triathlon season had worked out a bit differently I truly believe that everything we face in life is for a reason. I don’t know what that is yet but it will come to light soon. So, while you wait to hear about my trip to Utah and recent training adventures, here is a look back at the past year from birthday to birthday.

This first thing we did was load up the FJ and drive to this amazing place for a long weekend.
