An Update on the Accidental Trainer (That’s me)

I’ve been a horrible blogger. I’m not exactly sure where September went but it’s already gone and I’m going to just call it a loss – at least for posting purposes.

I’ve actually been incredibly busy. You may have heard about the flooding in Vermont caused by Hurricane Irene. I live on the border in Lebanon, NH and although I wasn’t personally affected, there were many, many victims of the storm. I’m on the board of North Country Community Theatre and our storage facilities were on the bank of the White River. They were completely covered with water and mud and I spent the first couple of weeks of September coordinating our flood clean-up efforts. There’s nothing quite like throwing away over 6 tons of vintage clothing and costumes, sets you’ve performed in, and props you’ve used. I was even interviewed for NPR.

On a happier note, the 4′ fiber glass pig, Rosie, I painted for Hanover, NH’s 250th Anniversary was auctioned off. The fitness club I work for was the winning bid so instead of going somewhere where I’ll never see her she now lives where I work! She has her own Facebook page if you’d like to check her out. Rosie has 19 siblings that you can learn more about here.

I’m looking forward to a calmer October. Although so far it involves me getting certified in Zumba, going to NYC to see Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway, helping out at RVC’s open house on October 15th, presenting Fitness 101 to our Lose Big Program, and co-producing a benefit concert for NCCT. Not seeing a lot of calm so far. Oh well, we’ll see how it goes.
