2014 Year in Review

2014 was a pretty busy year marked by parenthood and travels. My wife and I had our first baby in February. The summer and remaining months of 2014 were filled with travels.  In June, we moved from North Carolina to Maryland as part of my military change of duty station.  In transit we took a road trip to the northeast making stops at New Jersey, Connecticut and Boston before coming back down to Maryland.  We then traveled to the Dominican Republic for a Herbalife all-expensed paid vacation.  In July we traveled to Chicago for the annual Herbalife Extravaganza and then a couple weeks later drove up to Niagara Falls for a friend's wedding.  In September we traveled across the country for my brother-in-law's wedding.   In October I traveled to Fort Bliss (El Paso), TX for 5-weeks for work and got in some altitude training.  Travels that included running were Boston in April and California International Marathon in December.
