2014 was a good year with some few bumps. I have finally taken some time to reflect on the year and recap how the year unfolded from the end to the beginning. My season actually ended sooner than I would have liked. The week after Rancho Cordova I was out on a run and felt a sharp tightness in my left calf. I honestly thought nothing of it because my calves were still really sore/tight from the race. Well I should have stopped immediately, but I didn't and I ended up straining my calf. We still had 2+weeks to get it ready to race 70.3 Miami so I did everything I could to make it happen. Five days before the race my calf still wasn't ready to run so we decided to end the year and not race Miami.

Frankenmuth Triathon-1st! Awesome local triathlon 3 hours away from Findlay in the town where Bronner's is located (one of the biggest Christmas stores).
Challenge New Albany- 2nd! I considered this my "hometown" race since it is only 90 min away from home.
