Weekend Powder Monkies

My crazy January travel schedule continued this week. Rather than dwell on Monday morning's flight, we got out early Sunday to enjoy the snow and spend time exploring the mountain. Thanks to a decent snow year in the Wasatch, we've been able to drop into areas that would have ruined our skis and bodies the past few years.

After last week's 4 day multi-city travel, I was actually looking forward to an easy 2 day multi-city to Portland and Denver. Things got interesting on the drive from the airport to the client when my laptop decided it had had enough. I got it to limp through a meeting and then it died for good. I spent most of Monday rebooting and trying different restart codes with no luck. I sent the distress signal early, and a new computer would be in my hands on Wednesday. That meant that I had to use my colleagues laptop all day Tuesday. It required a lot of scrambling, but both presentations went well and the client had no idea. Not the easy trip I had hoped for.

2016 is Flying By - On Skis, Bikes, and Planes

I've barely been home in 2016 to do laundry let alone blog, but wanted to get a few photos posted before February arrives. Due to amazing snow conditions, cycling camp, and brutal work travel, January has flown by. I much prefer time traveling by skis or bike, but unfortunately I've also been logging air miles. Although the work travel isn't desirable, I'm making the most of the conditions no matter the mode of transportation.

Dec 31, 2015 - More Holiday Break skiing. So cold. Followed by fun times ringing out the old and bringing in the new with cycling friends in SLC.

Jan 1, 2016 - Happy New Year. Even colder.

Jan 2, 2016 - Skiing in the morning, Utes Women's Basketball with the neighbors in the evening.

Jan 3, 2016 - Last day of Holiday Break. Ready for a recovery day.

Jan 4-8, 2016 - Back to work, at least I only had to go into the office and not into a plane. Also helped out with Max Testa Training studio setup and got a little more serious on the trainer work…
