Once again, Heather leads off our “Best Photos” of the year.
“Breaking trail as we skied into a backcountry yurt on Cameron Pass in Colorado. This was my first yurt trip but definitely not my last; the beauty of the mountains in the winter is surreal!”

Thank you to everyone that sent in a photograph. I have so much fun seeing all of these amazing moments captured and I’m hoping you do as well. Cheers to the start of 2015 and your NEXT big adventure.

My son snapped this picture of me running and the sunflowers just made me feel so happy and FAST!!!! http://cottageofstone.com
Thought my marathon would be the best moment of the year, but it just didn’t turn out how I expected. Hiking the weekend after, I realized life has much bigger things in store, and a race is just a race. But my experiences in CA and adventures I take advantage of here mean so much more in the long-run. http://dietitianontherun.com
Coaching my mom through her first 5k. Her goal was to run the whole thing – she rocked it, as the badass medal proves! http://fitfulfocus.com
Running with my non-running husband in Hawaii 4 days after the Honolulu Marathon. Best moment of 2014 for me! http://happyfitmama.com
The morning after the ZOOMA Napa Valley half marathon, I went for a shakeout run in the neighborhood around my hotel. I stumbled upon a park with beautiful trails made only more so by the hobbyists floating their colorful hot air balloons in the sky. Healthystrides.blogspot.com
The one race that wasn’t about time or pushing myself in 2014. Colour Me Rad in Calgary, last June, was strictly about having fun with some of my friends. #NailedIt http://www.kaellaontherun.com
Photo from the South Dakota Trail Running Champs. When I let my hair down to race, I’m locally known as the wild woodsman of the Black Hills. Photo courtesy of the Black Hills Trail Running Series. http://KyleKranz.com
My favorite thing about this picture is that this is IN New York City. There are so many pockets of beauty in this big city and it’s a joy to discover them. http://www.lovelifesurf.com
The joy of accomplishing something for the first time should always be celebrated. PDRs all around at our Girls on the Run NYC practice 5k. http://racepacejess.com
The finish line for my second marathon with my husband. I ran in memory of my friend Tammy, for Team Lung Love, and her parents are in the picture cheering us across. http://roseerunner.wordpress.com
Out of all the amazing running, camping, hiking, and family memories of 2014… I would have to say my FAVORITE 2014 memory is running a local 5K race WITH all my boys! It was our first family 5K. My heart was (and is) full. www.runningrachel.com
You never forget your first time turning left onto Boylston. The emotions. The tears. The cheers. Boston is magical. And I am very fortunate to have been able to take place in reclaiming our finish line. http://SharpEndurance.com
When RunEmz flew from Phoenix, AZ to Vancouver, BC to surprise me at the BMO Vancouver Marathon and run the last 6 miles of my race with me. http://www.theathletarian.com
Thanks again to everyone that was a part of this post. Wishing you all the best in the new year.
