What an incredible year. Started with finding the woman of my dreams in Tucson. Alexa has changed my life in ways i never thought possible. Found something that makes me so happy and feel so loved.


Followed that with a great... adventurous road trip to Tennessee where I ended up qualifying for my Pro License in triathlon with a great performance at Chattanooga coming 2nd overall.


Climbed the grand canyon in under 7 hours with Alexa, followed by 2 more beautiful hikes the following day :D


Set a few course records this summer around the area.


Went on a few day mountain biking trip....

 

Alexa came up to fish and race in ND/MN and spend some time at the lakes.


Alexa and i both made Team USA for switzerland in august at the national championship, she was an all american in the olympic distance, i came in 10th overall at the sprint distance.


Two weeks later i went around the world with my best friend and grandparents to race the 70.3 World Championships in South africa. What an incredible experience. The safari after was something that will always be in my memories, the race was a blast, what a great time!

Came home and a few weeks later i defended my title at the Wild Hog Marathon running a PR of 2:40:XX, while alexa crushed her first open marathon.


Raised over $5000 for smile train to change the life of 20 kids, probably saving most their lives too!


Two months later i became an IRONMAN in Arizona!


That weekend I came home and shot my buck with my dad the morning before the season closed!


All of this while going to school!


One month after that (next weekend) i will Graduate from NDSU with my degree in Business Administration.


BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!!:


The day after graduation i will be MOVING with my best buddy Corey to Tucson Arizona!!
