later '12!!

So much of 2012 for me was non-stop. Trip to trip - spending long days climbing, bolting, exploring, or traveling - It was amazing - it's the pace and the lifestyle that I've been dreaming of. It's also nice to relax a little from time to time, and catch up on life outside of climbing - which I've done alright with over the last month in Colorado.
Visiting extended family, spending time with my parents, running, hiking, reading, watching films, relaxing. Training has been one of my top priorities too, and I feel strongly that I've made some real gains in the last month or so. Exciting for me - especially considering my goals, ambitions for the next year... always looking ahead.

GREAT turn out at the Viva screening on the 20th.
Now my stay in Colorado is beginning to wind down. I'll be making my annual winter pilgrimage to Las Vegas here before too long, with a truck full of my life and months of sunny weather, projects and adventures to look forward to.

Before I take off I'm going to pack in as much as I can here. Many of my best friends from growing up are in town, and it's been a long time since we all were able to catch up. We'll be celebrating an incredible 2012 together, and looking forward to surly an amazing 2013 tomorrow night. I hope everyone has plans for a wild and (relatively) safe night!

Before we close down 2012, I want to take a quick moment to thank YOU. My readers, followers, friends and fans -- my support community. This has been an incredible journey for me, and I feel so fortunate, so motivated and blessed to have this opportunity before me, and I feel as though things are just beginning. It would not be possible for me without the support of my community. I've really been feeling the love recently, and I was honored to see my name included in the Golden Piton Awards for 2012! Thanks everyone. Here's to an incredible 2013!!!!!!!! see you next year ya'll!!!!!!
