Happy New year. 

Today I ran up North Canyon. The trail was good for about 3 miles up, then got really soft. It was amazing up there this morning. I love winter trail running. 

2012 ended with about 800 miles and 150,000 feet of elevation gain.

For 2013 I have decided to push my limits and climb 377,377 feet. That may sound like a strange number. It is the equivalent of summitting  Mt Everest from sea level 13 times. 13 Everest summits in 2013. Anyone care to join me?

Ran with a group of friends up Farmington Canyon. There were three Matt's in the group. Myself, Matt VH, & Matt W. It was nice to run with somebody again. Most of my runs this winter have been solo. I turned around at 3.5 miles because I had to go to work. The rest of group continued on up to 5 miles.

Quick business trip down in St George. I was able to get an early run in before the my meetings. It is warmer here, but not by much.
