Looking back it was an excellent year of running. Most importantly it was my first year since 2008 without a DNF. It was also my first 100 mile finish since my first one at Vermont in 2008.
I was surprised when I tallied up that I ran 3,327 miles in 2014. That's a lot more than 2013 and more than 2012 as well. I was humbled by the experience of running my first international race and learned how the big boys and girls do it in the Alps.
I am already excited by what is in store for 2015, but more on that soon! In the meantime, here are a few of my favorite pics from the year.

Wild backcountry and steep trails in the Sardona Ultra
Happy guy to have survived Sardona and the longest 36 miles of my life
