January 1 also marks my one year anniversary as a Utahn. It has been a year long love affair with the mountains, and I'm happy to have 4.5 more years to explore, adventure, and test my physical limits! While it can be incredibly difficult to be away from family and our dear Wisco friends (Badger for life!!), running in the mountains & connecting with the trail community has provided me with much needed solace. Happy Utah-versary to me, and happy holidays to all of you! Thanks for reading and I hope the new year brings health, love, adventure, and success! Enjoy some of my favorite pics from 2014.
