Goals for 2020

2020, a new year, a new decade, a new me (right?). Well no, not exactly. Each year, for me, builds on the last. I don’t come up with absurd goals that I don’t think are achievable or realistic. I also try to make sure that these goals push me outside of my comfort zone and force me to get better at everything I do.

Even though most of my goals are in the mountains, and pushing my limits there, the real challenge is elsewhere. The real challenge is now completing all these goals with a new job. See, for the past 2 years, ever since I’ve lived in Utah, I’ve been working from home as an engineer, on east coast time. That meant I finished most days around 2-3PM, leaving plenty of time after work to crush as much vert and miles as I could handle. My new job is located here in Park City, UT and I’ll be working much longer, regular hours. 

So this means many more of these goals will involve dawn patrols and headlamps! Here are my goals for this year:
