The Year of Awesomeness: The Good, the Bad, the Awesome!

2017, the “Year of Awesomeness!” It certain has been quite the year with many ups and downs, but when I take a look back and reflect on it I can certainly say it was a year full of AWESOMENESS!

The Good, the Bad, the AWESOMENESS!

The Good:

I took trips all over the country this year. Some for my passion of Spartan, others for the amazing moments in my closest friends lives.

The Bad:

I say bad, but I am more than grateful for everything. I have a roof over my head, a steady job, my health, and everything I need.

  • My battle with Achilles Tendonitis (Just about healed)
  • Loss of motivation at times because of injuries (more on this later)
  • Plantar Fasciitus (One of the worst nagging injuries ever)
  • The car accident (Don’t worry, I’m ok)

Seriously, four things to even call bad. I would say that is a pretty small list.


The Awesome:

Anyone who knows me knows that I enjoy experiences over material things any day.  Here are few things that happened.

  • Disneyland (1st timer here)
  • Universal (1st time)
  • 80s Prom
  • NSCA National Conference, Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Spartan Obstacle course Specialist
  • Ben & Jerry’s Tour
  • Britney Spears Concert in Vegas
  • Garbage/Blondie Concert
  • Pikes Peak and Bigfoot
  • Dodger Games (still a Sox Fan though.  Don’t worry)
  • Training at Sports Academy
  • Queen Mary Fright Night
  • LA Zoo Night Lights
  • BDAY Celebration
  • Xmas Parties
  • Malibu Beach Workout
  • The One Up Bar experience
  • Rams Game
