Saturday August 28th I won the Over 50 Overall title at the 2009 IFBB North American Championships and finally earned a coveted IFBB Pro Card!!! What a thrill! I couldn’t have done it without my girlfriend, Diana Hurley. She made me do cardio many times that I didn’t want to get out of bed early, or when I was feeling too tired at the end of the day. It all paid off on Saturday!!!
After the show we hit downtown Cleveland for some sashimi, a couple of sushi rolls and a few drinks. Then Sunday morning we were up for cardio and back on the mission for my next goal….a class win at the NPC Team Universe. I want to make the US team to the IFBB Amateur World Championships before stepping on the Pro stage in 2010.
Note the very cool Built By Iron shirt I’m sporting in the pic above. Thanks Reid! And, thank you to all of my friends and fans for all of your support, and all of your congratulatory messages!!! I’ll get to all of them eventually!
Now I’m off to the airport. I’m heading to LA to shoot with Michael Neveux for the magazine!!! Look for future articles and a cover with me and Crystal West!
