November 11th, 2007

Just returned from the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Clearwater and a wonderful weekend with my family.

We stayed with Rob Boos and his great family. Rob has been a client of IronEdge and a great friend for the past few years. I am pleased to say that Rob had an awesome day finishing twenty minutes ahead of his goal time in a blazing fast 4:41:45 – AWESOME JOB!!!

Thursday proved to be a great opportunity to meet with several of the athletes I coach and friends from all over the United States!! I want to congratulate a few more IronEdge athletes, Phaedra Cote from Spokane, Washington and Jennifer Cunnane from St. Louis Missouri. These are two terrifically talented women and I am proud to call them my friends. Phaedra has two boys and Jennifer triplets!! Us mom’s need to stick together!!!

Race Day I had the unique opportunity to work for IronmanLive with Greg Welch (Welchie) and Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington. How can the day not be fun when you get to spend it with Welchie. It was an entirely different perspective for me and was really a blast! What a race – the men sprinting to the finish, nice work Andy and Oscar coupled with some outstanding running on the women’s side. Congrats to all!!

My husband Todd and I topped the night off watching our kids dance on the Ironman Stage to the live band after the awards ceremony. Another beautiful night in Florida!!

November 1st, 2007

Trick or Treat time where we live is just awesome!! People in our neighborhood make it a real party with many cooking out and hanging out in their driveways for the evening. The kids have a great time cleaning up on the candy front!! My three kids all went as Baseball Players – they all happen to wear the #1 on their uniforms this year. I have had some fun with this as just recently we all went to see the movie The Game Plan (I would highly recommend it by the way). Anyway, “The Rock” the star of the movie was taping a TV Commercial where his line was “#1 on the field - #1 in your heart”

I yell this out as they come up to bat – the OH MOM look on their face is priceless!!
