I pulled the trigger and signed up for the Rock and Roll Arizona Half Marathon. I’ve been feeling pretty good running and wanted to go ahead and commit, so much easier to maintain motivation once you’ve paid your entry fee! I haven’t been running very fast lately, but it has felt good and I’ve been […]Read More Signed Up
I’ve been trying to get back on the running train lately. It’s been a few years since I was really running a good amount and I miss it. It can be a great morning workout, much quicker than a bike ride, and a great way to clear the head before a busy day. I’ve felt […]Read More Running!

This year we choose the Conejos River area near Antonio, Co for our backpacking adventure. We hiked from the Three […]Read More Summer Backpacking Trip

Got started gathering the gear and loading the pack for the quickly approaching Colorado trip! This always starts the buildup of excitement before a cool trip. I hit up REI for some food and fuel, but really didn’t need to get much this year. Really trying to get down just the stuff I need, which […]Read More Loading Up!
While I think we all know that no picture of an amazing outdoor scene truly does it justice, you can still capture some great shots. I think I’ve gotten some cool shots for some guy snapping pictures with his phone’s camera while hiking around, so here’s some of my favorites. All pics taken with various […]Read More A Few of My Favorite Pics from Past Year’s Adventures
