Update for my friends...

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I have been really, really busy over the last month so here is a quick summary before I go to night shift...

1) What started out as a local idea for a running club at the Anytime Fitness I go to, has now gone area wide spanning 2 counties. We are coordinating group runs and are planning a group trip to the Whistlestop race in Ashland Wisconsin in October. There is a full and half marathon as well as a 5 & 10K race so there is something for everyone in our group.

2) I completed my Coaching Fundamentals course and am now entry level certified through USATF.

I've been hard at work and it is now beginning to show .. here is a link to my fitness credentials so far..

3) I got my online coaching business up and running and am working on doing recorded webinars..

4) Currently working on writing a book... BIG PROJECT... (head explodes)

5) I am also currently training for:

-Teal Lake Swim (Benefit for diabetes research) 2.25 miles open water (finished last year in 1hr 41 minutes)
-UP Northwoods Triathlon
- Whistlestop Half Marathon

6) The Run Or Dye 5k is rapidly approaching and there is a conspiracy in the running group to get me totally color plastered as well as to try to get me to wear a TU TU!! ... ummmm NOPE ;)

Last but not least.... Big moments this week as a daddy.. my youngest is now on her way to high school and my oldest just graduated high school...

and yes, even the kitty is a little smarter... with honors in napping, chair selection, scratch post fundamentals, and mooching.

    Oh, I love it all! Your smiling daughter with her smiling dad, the medal your other daughter wears so proudly, even the cat!

But most of all, Robert, I love all you've done with your life. What a glowing lamp you have lit in this world, what a fantastic example you are, for all of us, for your clients and, especially, for your girls.

Super, super congratulations, and thank you for keeping those of us who cannot get on Facebook up-to-date on your inspiring journey.

    I am so happy to read this, and to contrast it with they guy a year or so ago who was hoping to start a class at his local gym... You have come a LONG way, and at some point if you ever do get laid off, you will have a great head start in a new career! You are AMAZING!!
