I saw a year in photos on Amy’s blog and loved the idea. I promise this is the last recap of 2013!
Here are my monthly highlights from the year.
We spent this month hibernating at home and spending time with Harold before an extended vacation.
The highlight was definitely going back to Thailand, sightseeing, playing in the ocean, and taking a nice break from winter!
We finished our Asia trip with two weeks in China. We had a blast, but the true highlight was probably coming home to Harold!
After five weeks in Asia with lots of food and not a ton of running, I had my work cut out for me to get ready for a June Ironman. I worked hard in April and rode countless miles on the trainer!
We snuck away to the mountains in early May for our first camping trip of the season. It was good to be back!
Ironman Coeur d’Alene pretty much dominated this month! Kelly got a huge personal best, and I bested my time by a whopping 55 seconds!
This was a busy month with lots of training, the Tour d’Alberta bike ride, and Kelly’s Dad’s 60th birthday party. However, the highlight was probably seeing family at my cousin’s wedding!
I had a great August, from an awesome Jasper camping trip to Whistler for the Ironman to an Okanagan holiday. Hands down the best part was having Kelly and Harold surprise me in Whistler. Despite my exhausted arms, I proudly carried Harold around after the race!
This was another great month with the end of our BC holiday, trips to New Orleans and Vancouver, a camping trip to celebrate Kelly’s 30th birthday, and our fifth wedding anniversary.
After a busy couple months, it was great to be home in October! We spent a lot of time on the trails.
The highlight of November was a Jasper trip to cross-country and downhill ski. We love that town!
We had a fantastic Canmore trip at the beginning of the month, but Christmas was definitely the highlight. We had a marvelous few days full of family, food, and fun, and we got spoiled rotten. With such busy lives, it’s great to slow down and catch up with family!
This is just a snapshot of 2013! I have a lot to be thankful for: another year of health, a wonderful husband, a supportive family, a body that carries me through many adventures, the means to travel, the list goes on and on.
Wishing you and your family a healthy, happy, adventure-filled 2014!
Tell me a few highlights from your year!
