Let the One-on-One Torture Begin

I may have bailed on the pursuit of adding the letters p, h, and d to the end of my already incredibly long name.  However, I ended up still liking the P and switched the h and d for c and t.  So now I can add this to my name...


As of this morning, I am officially certified as a personal trainer by the National Academy of Sports Medicine!  Woohoo!!

So now I'm allowed to torture you one-on-one!  ha-HA!  I'm sure my members will enjoy that new found possibility.  =P  I have no doubt I could have passed this exam long ago, but when an exam costs over $600, you want to be sure it's not going to be a waste.  Right? 

Now I can cross "Become a personal trainer" off my list.  With the Ironman and the certification, this has been a big year!  I can't wait for the end of the year to share my accomplishments list and to read yours!! 


1.  Have you accomplished something BIG this year?
My first Ironman and certified as a CPT as well as running coach.

2.  Have you ever worked with a personal trainer?
What made you decide to get a CPT?, and how was your experience?

3.  Have you been working on your 2013 race calendar?
I have a rough draft of 20 set races so far.  I'll post them soon.

Dream.  Believe.  Achieve.

I've done all three this past year. Completed 2 70.3's. I did hire a personal trainer for awhile but I think I got more out of my swim coach. I just started working on my 2013 calendar. Obviously it all centers around Ironman Wisconsin. Everything else is gravy. :)
