End of another year – 2012 highlights

As 2012 grows to an end it’s time to re-cap all of the great memories that made this one hell of a year! I’ll try to go in order but just like my memories…things get scrambled.

  • Started out the year with friends at Roger and Lauri’s house for New Years Eve
  • Long ski weekend in Steamboat Springs for my birthday
  • Had our annual St. Patty’s Day party with good friends
  • Joined the triathlon club at Colorado Multisport – first time ever joining a tri club
  • Got a Retul bike fit which has saved my cycling
  • Starting swimming with a Masters group for the first time ever
  • Started cycling with a group from Colorado Multisport for the first time – intimidating!
  • Completed the hardest swim ever in the Summer Open triathlon – 2-3 ft swells, people getting pulled from the water left and right
  • Week vacation – Drove to South Dakota – camping, hiking, animal sightings, and drinking good beer
  • Regularly swam in the BAM open water swims
  • Competed in the Boulder 5430 sprint triathlon
  • Competed in the Boulder Peak Olympic triathlon
  • Completed my first ever half ironman (Boulder 70.3) – Best accomplishment yet!
  • Drove to Montana – Glacier National Park – amazing hiking, camping, canoeing, rafting, horseback riding, bear sightings – Best vacation EVER!
  • Drove to Utah – hiking, camping, new experiences, and even more great beer
  • Great American Beer Fest in Denver – great time
  • Trip to Brussels & Brugges, Belgium and to Amsterdam, Holland – awesome to travel overseas
  • Cutting down the Christmas tree with hubby’s mom – yearly tradition
  • Homebrewed 4 different batches of our own beer
  • And, of course, my favorite holiday…Christmas

There are so many other special moments that just happen along with way like regularly hiking in Golden Gate Canyon, skiing at Eldora, sitting on our patio drinking new craft beers while solving the worlds problems, cycling with my training buddy, picking up amazing food at Whole Foods, trail running, eating at Japango with my hubby, playing ball in the yard with Puppy, grilling out, having friend come up to our house, driving on dirt roads and the amazing animals I see along with way. I really do love the life that hubby and I have created. We work hard and play hard and I love that. I don’t think that we can top this year in 2013 but we’ll have fun trying! Cheers!
