ACCOLADES and SHOUT OUTS
I've got quite an extensive client list now. Most of them are beautiful people who add a lot to my life, and I'm honored they choose to spend an hour or more each week or month with me. They've become some of my staunchest supporters--people I know I can count on without question. And whether they realize it or not, they've become ambassadors for me. Once they learn the importance of eating organically, recycling, taking responsibility for their own health, and the many other subjects which are often driven home to them in my studio, they help me spread these messages and influence far more people than I could ever hope to reach alone. I want to give them props for this and highlight some of their amazing accomplishments. So check back often, but here's a bit of what's been happening with some of them:
UPDATE as of 8/31/10:
C.Williamson finished his first IM, well under 12hrs at Ironman Louisville.
