It's that time of year again, the end, when we take a look back at the year that was. In the next two posts here on Human Potential, we're going to take a look back at the year 2011, in pictures. We'll also top it off with a year in video montage which I hope you'll enjoy. Sometimes I feel like this past year lacked much of the true adventure that other years have had. The great thing about looking back is seeing how wrong I really am. 2011 was filled with life changes, accomplishments, journey and inspiration. I'm really looking forward to 2012 but for now.. here is what 2011 looked like.
The Frigid Caboose Fat Ass 50K was a great adventure on top of 3+ feet of snow along New Hampshire's Rockingham Rail Trail. Team Robert joined us for the first half while Nate, Julie and I ran the rest of the way to Newfields.
Sarah and I headed up to the Fool Scouts Ball, and event we had been to the first few editions of but had missed a few in between. This was the start of our farewell tour, a chance to say goodbye to many of the friends we'd made over the years.
Still cannot believe that I got to spend the day with one of my lifetime heroes, Tedy Bruschi. Guiding him on an all day hike is, and will probably forever be, revered as one of the highest honors I've ever had. It was a fantastic day leading him around the Belknap Range of NH.
Some said it couldn't be done and yet, I did it. I graduated from The University of New Hampshire with a Bachelors in Kinesiology: Outdoor Education.
Two days later, Sarah and I arrived in Colorado where we've since dug in our roots. Driving across country is an amazing journey. Especially when tornados twirl around your U-Haul in Iowa as you tow all of your worldly possessions.
And so I started my job as a Professional Guide in Colorado's Front Range. Here I am guiding on Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park.
