Traveling a bit!

Two weekends ago Yoana, Marianna and I took a 3 day vacation up to San Francisco and we had a blast. What a cool city! We also stopped by to visit my cousin Laura Snideman in San Mateo and from their went to San Jose to say hi to the RKC community. It was awesome seeing everyone; Pavel, Rif and Tracy (finally got to meet her), Fawn Friday, Sara Cheatham and her husband Mike, Chris Holder and his fiance, Vincent Mays, Dr. Mark Cheng, Zar Horton, Mark Toomey, Joe Sarti, Michael Castrogiavanni, Brett Jones, Dennis Armstrong, Andrea and John Ducaine, and the ever so strong Santa Cruz dudes, Tyler Bramlett and Logan Christopher. Of course it was nice to see Dan John there because he really does bring life to any party!
And last weekend I went to Phoenix to take my 5th NMT (Neuromuscular Therapy) seminar from Paula Bergs, a Minnesotan. It was UPPER EXTREMITY! She is a fantastic teacher and knows her stuff like you couldn't imagine. Next post I will give a brief review of the workshop.
I finally started training last week and will start posting my workouts this week!

You and Yoanna in a picture make others look good too.

Vincent Mayes is a familiar face to me. Great to see another June 2007er doing great.

Glad you guys had fun! Hope the travels were smooth with your baby girl.

Thank you! Vincent Mayes is a great guy! He was at the RKC the same time you were there

Hey Lauren,

Yeah, we had a blast! Traveling with the baby was pretty good. Although I have to get used to traveling with all the "baby GEAR" now :)

Thanks for posting pictures, Franz. I will say it again... I was so happy to have the opportunity to finally meet you and Yoana in person! Your little baby Mariana is a little angel.

I'm so glad you guys popped in on the cert. It was nice to see you both with Marianna! You are all too inspiring. An example to live by, for sure. :) Hopefully we can catch up again soon.
p.s. I'm keeping my eye on an Orbit for when we have a little one of our own. :p That thing is AWESOME!

Right back at you! It was awesome to finally meet you. June is right around the corner. Barbecue at the Fridays place????

It was great to see you and your hubby! Awesome job on the Squat presentation. Powerful!!!!

You must get the ORBIT when you guys have a little one. It will save your back getting in and out of the car and besides just looks really cool :)
