Looking forward to this new year of challenging adventures. This year I have a few goals I want to accomplish to help crush a few of my weaknesses. Here they are 1- Complete my year long probationary period as a Firefighter. I am very fortunate to have landed my dream job this past year and hope that 2018 is a year packed with training and learning how to be the best fireman I can be for this community and for my crew. 2-Read 1 book a month. This may not seem like much, but I have a hard time sitting down to read even though I love to learn and know how beneficial it can be. 3- Run a marathon. I have never run nearly that distance and would like to push myself in a sport that I tend to struggle with. Running long distance is a great way to prepare mentally and physically for the challenges that come spending time in the mountains and increasing my productivity at work. With this I hope to be in the best shape possible so I can get back into hunting the backcountry and hopefully harvest some wild meat this fall. What are your goals? Any tips or book recommendations? #wildgoals2018 .

Hubs wanted to try out his new @altrarunning trail shoes (not sure which ones) and couldn’t find a trail to go to so we hauled the sandbag, weight vest, and kids to the track and did a little of this and a little of that. It felt good to take a round on my old Cross Country course. We’ve decided to do that more often. #altrashoes#bruteforce@bruteforcesandbags
I’m working towards getting back on the Asphalt. It’s been two years since I purchased a new pair of running shoes. I need to bump up my shoe game. I’m looking for a shoe that will absorb the shock and provide leg/knee support. I’ve worn Brooks, Saucony, and Mizuno. I’m checking out the Altra and Netwton Running Shoes. I have a neutral running gate, I’m wondering which one will work. Have you tried these brands? What are your thoughts? #running#runningworld#runninginspiration#runninginsta#altrashoes#newtonrunningshoes#newtonrunning#altrarunning
For all of my fellow runners, hikers and #altrashoes loving friends...there is an Icon Fitness Outlet in the industrial area off of 12th that has loads of these shoes. I just bought 2 pair for $106.00 😄 They don't advertise so you all need to know! Love my new kicks!!! 😉

28 mile training day ✅ 🏃
This was his last long run before his Moab Ultra 50k, (30.2miles) I was able to run 5 and bike 10 with him, and he did amazing!!! He’s a beast! #altrarunning#altrashoes#proudwife
Back in the gym today to get my max deadlift for the beginning of #charliemike and for a little rowing and interval running. Loving my new shirt from @altrarunning. Idk what material it’s made of bits it’s a dry fit shirt that actually absorbs sweat. Usually when I wear dry fit shirts, I can’t wipe the sweat off my face but this one I could! I wish there was more colors like this on the website. Hubby even bought him his first pair of trail shoes that I’m super jealous of until I wear out my current ones to get me some #altrashoes thanks @battle611.training.events for the gift card. #dedicatedtobattle
Here’s my throwback Thursday. This upcoming Sunday is the Leadville trail 100 lottery and I want to wish everyone good luck. It was a wonderful race, well put together and I am hoping to make it back this year!

Plans for a 30 min run turned into a 1.5 hour run. Funny how the little things like new shoes can really turn into motivation. As you can tell I really liked my altra torin 2.5
