2014 Year in Review in Pics and by the #'s

Looking back at 2014, well it sure was a busy year.  To think that all of this happened in a 365 day period is pretty crazy.

- Traveled to Japan to visit Hila (Feb)
-  Separated from the AF (Jul)
- Traveled to Colorado, Ohio, Wisconsin, New York, Canada, California (Jul/Aug/Sep)
- Had a wedding for our family AKA "Got married again"
- Raced Kona (Oct)
- Moved to the Oxford, England (Oct)

 Training while Deployed to Afghanistan.  This was a joke, although they did make me put on my PT Gear over my cycling kit.
 Traveled to Japan to visit Hila in February and we got dumped on with snow.
 Attended RWB Tri Camp w/ the wife and met this inspirational athlete Rachel and her dog Kalev!
 Finally raced NYC Tri and had the honor of guiding Aaron again.  This was the only time ahead of him, he drug me around the swim and run course.

 Getting married to Hila, again, with all of our family and friends present this time.
 Some R&R up in Tahoe before the final build into Kona.
 Finished off Kona crossing the line with Reilly Smith, who I ran the last 10K with.
And the start to a new beginning, my first pro race in Lanzarote.

Thanks to everyone that has continued to support me over the years.  I am looking forward to this next chapter in my life and it wouldn't be possible without all of my family and friends!
