2014 was awesome.
6 months are already almost gone in 2015!! What a pain. Well, actually overall this year has been amazing, but it's a pain that I haven't been up to date on Blogging and Video-producing this year!
So here's what I started writing 4-6 months ago.
The second half of this year is going to be GREAT
PLANNED: things I was FOR SURE doing
Started 2014 off right with a great trip up towards 'Centerville Peak' postholing in the super nice conditions, but hard mean leg-cutting snow!
Kakes and I also started the year with an Instagram yoga challenge that was a lot of fun.
We tried to make the challenge even more fun by (sometimes) incorporating the yoga pose requirements into our trail running and normal activities.
|Oh yeah - I won a 'fitness' award at work - we did yoga there too|
Oh yeah - and EVERY run I did I wore shorts. No matter what!
January ended up with 140.8 miles and 28,655 ft of climbing! NICE!
At the start of February I went to San Francisco for a work training.
Training lasted from 9 am until 4 pm... but often got out early. So I ran.
It was awesome.
THEN there was the WEDGE 2014 with 18 people!
The people that came to this run have become some constant running companions. It's awesome!
It was even more awesome to have my Kakes out there - she ran over 20 miles for her longest run so far! So awesome!
Shortly after the Wedge we made a video about ultra running.
It's still so fun to watch - great idea Jennilyn!!
Someday I'll have a video that reaches as far as this one has!!
February was my 3rd highest month EVER with 184.3 miles and 19,645 ft of gain.
March was a lot of good training runs before the buffalo run - I had a great Race you can read about here.
Ended up with 155.6 miles in March, 16,937 ft vert.
Holy moly this is taking too long! Faster summary!
April: 161.5 miles, 35,060 ft vert!
Ran the BoSho Marathon (awesome Bandit Race - so I probably made it up... yeah) for the first time, and started lots of waterfall runs, which I love.
May: HUGE bump 204 miles, 53,130 ft vert!!
Lots of peaks, lots of waterfalls, oh yeah - even did the Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim in the Grand Canyon!
May was great!
June: 125.5 miles, 25,069 ft vert
Some good peaks and Ragnar - not sure why mileage was so low
July: 138.1 miles, 37,870 ft vert
Timpanogos and other peaks - including first time up Lone Peak, AND my wife broke ankle down in the canyon while I was up there. Yikes!
August: 164.9 miles, 35,337 ft
More peaks, more fun, ramping up training for the Bear
September: 191 miles, 48,141 ft
Paced 40something miles of the Wasatch, became obsessed with ridges(WURL), ran the Bear 100 in torrential rain and mud. Blech.
October: 54.6 miles HORRIBLE. 13,670 ft
Recovery from the Bear was rough. Pulled a calf muscle or something making it very hard to do anything. Had fun volunteering at TNF
November: 104.3 miles, 19,621 ft
Peaks (Devils Castle, Sundial) Water run to Fremont, An awesome non-presidents day wedge I never blogged about - starting to feel better.
December: 138.8 miles, 39,344 ft
Made it down and ran with the Utah County folks to bag some new peaks, finally started to feel like I could run again!
What a year!
Here's basically everywhere I ran in 2014 - from San Francisco to Denver, from the Grand Canyon to Bear Lake!
Hopefully I can expand that even more for 2015!!
Oh and if you are interested - my Strava all-time heat map is kind of fun!
