The ATLAS detector at CERN's Large Hadron Collider had a
successful Run 1 with proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energy 7
TeV in 2011 and then 8 TeV in 2012.  In addition to the discovery of the
Higgs Boson, hundreds of analyses have been performed on this data to test
theories predicting physics beyond our current Standard Model.  This summer
we began taking data at center-of-mass energy 13 TeV, which we will
continue for the upcoming few years.  I will describe where we stand with
the Run 1 data in-hand, how this start-up is going, and what we can hope to
discover in Run 2.
