Off to Las Vegas


After volleyball practice I will leave for Las Vegas for the NSCA Convention. Going to Las Vegas is not something I look forward to, I am not into gambling, smoking, drinking and crowds, but it is chance to catch up with friends and professional colleagues. I can’t help but reflect back to my first NSCA Convention in Los Angeles in 1983. Most of the attendees were coaches. The personal training thing was in the future. It will be interesting to see the composition of the attendees. I am looking forward to attending Dan Baker’s, Jim Radcliffe’s and Tracy Fober’s talks after that I when I am not at the Foster-Miller Booth representing their innovative Physiological Monitoring System I will hang out in the research presentations. Sunday I fly to Colorado Springs for three days at the Olympic Training Center for a gathering of coaches from USA Curling. It will be fun to be involved in a different sport.
