I've done this post every year, and I'm sure that I enjoy putting it together more than anyone enjoys reading it.
We start our lives in Colorado.
The long stream of visitors happily begins.
Yasi comes to visit and we spend all weekend on the trainer thanks to a huge dump of snow.
I fall back in love with skiing after being away from it for a decade.
I spend an amazing weekend in California with Anabel, riding my ass off and eating everything I can.
More wonderful visitors.
We move into our new house.
Ironman recovery with a visit and a lot of beer.
Gait analysis and back to training.
We visit Chicago so the poet can run a marathon.
I get to run with my girls.
We travel to Mexico and I kick off my off-season with a bang (or a crunch).
Putting this together is always so much fun because of the reflection that goes on. Any year has ups and downs, but looking back on this one all I see is love, friendship, happiness, joy, and growth.
