You can call me Coach Tia! :-)

Monday, May 27, 2013

Last weekend I spent it at the University of Central Florida, 2 1/2 days, 23 hours of class time and a test that took me almost 6 hours to take. All to become a USATF Level 1 Coach!!! USATF is the USA Track & Field organization. The class was intense and long but I learned so much! So now I will have some credentials to do what I've been doing for over 2 years. I plan to only coach virtually, since I'm always training or racing myself lol. But I'm excited about it!

Took this weekend with hubby and got away to the beach! Excited about my last Half of the season, race #19 of this year and my 30th Half. Niagara Falls here I come! Hope you had a great long weekend!

Had to share a couple pics of my nephew and I at a recent Boston Memorial Run. He's 7 and was so proud he ran the entire 5k!
