2012 year in review

Holy cow has it been a long time since I have been here. I guess sometime we do not feel like we have much to share or that we just feel like people do not care what we have to say. Either way I am back to review the my 2012 year. Now you might be saying to yourself man that seems like a lot to cover. I will give you the cliff note version.


This year like every year before it has had a soundtrack to it. Music in my life has always been very important, it's fill's the gaps. Cursing in my car, sitting by the computer, or gliding along during my runs. Music is a big part of it. That being said this is my top 10 album list for the year.

10.) Of Monsters and Men-My Head is a Animal
9.) The Avett Brothers- The Carpenter
8.) The Gaslight Anthem- Handwritten
7.) Silversun Pickups- Neck of the Woods
6.) Jack White- Blunderbuss
5.) Django Django
4.) Trampled by Turtles- Stars and Satellites
3.) Alt-J- An Awesome Wave
2.) Snow Patrol- Fallen Empires
1.) Linkin Park- Living Things

What can I say Linkin Park never fails to deliver for me from album to album. That being said it was a great year in music and picking my favorite 10 was no easy task.

Running and Races:

It was another ok year in running for me. I did have some fun and epic type runs but just overall a so so year. I think having my achilles being such a problem all year did put a damper on a lot but that being said all running is good running in my book. Some highlights would be...

*Watching my wife Sonya battle back at Fans 24hr for a great finish
* My winter trail miles with Paul, fun stuff in the snow
* The RV trip with Adam and Paul to Arkansas for Sylamore 50k
* Running solid at Chip 50k even though my foot was on fire
* Fun night run with Nick at Afton then the 40 miler in rain with Paul and Brian
*Pacing my friends Adam and Maria at SHT 100 miler ( Maria's first finish! )

So as I put a cap on 2012 I look forward to 2013 with the hopes of many more miles and experience with my great friends. As simple as it sounds I just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and good things will happen!!

I will leave you with this fun video about Mike Foote. Man this might be a good way to live huh?

A new strategy educating shouldn been quit, though which can be done various other physical exercises to hold your health. Kyrie Irving Jersey
