Gale, Yes we did it!!! Thank you so much. Ironman Florida was great for me! With your help, I have progressed from Olympic distance to Ironman. All four trainings worked well for me.(Olympic, Half-Iron, Beginning Ironman, and 13 weeks to 13 hour Ironman) Next stop is Ironman France June 2010,and yes I will be using your training. 60 years old and ready for an Ironman. Thanks again,  Iron Bob



Greetings Iron Bob ~


Thanks so much for dropping me a note. I can’t tell you how much it means to me to know my plans help athletes achieve their dreams and goal events.


A huge congratulations to you!


I’m going to post this great note on my blog. (I’ll keep your e-mail address off for privacy purposes.)


You are certainly an inspiration to others that might have any hesitations about just going for it.


Keep me posted on how France goes for you.


All the best ~


Gale Bernhardt
