04/09/2019

I love a good favorites list. Anyone else? I’ve shared a couple of these in the past, but never continued them because writing took a back seat to life. But I miss writing lately and hope to post more regularly – and not just about triathlon.

our long weekend in missoula.

Have you guys been to Missoula, Montana? I’d visited a couple brief times and enjoyed it, but after a recent long weekend there exploring, Nick and I decided that if (when?) we ever move, it’ll be to Missoula. It’s big enough that it has…
