My first Ironman is complete and it was one of the most rewarding and fun days of my life.  Seriously, I loved it!!  I finished in the time I had in mind, had no major problems through the day and even smiled for most of it!  I’ll definitely do another one and I think you should too.

Going into race day for Ironman Australia 2012, my plan was to finish in 12-13 hours.  My official time ended up at 12hrs 40mins.  (The winner finished in approx 8hr 15mins while the last person crossed the line after almost 17 hours!)

Below is a quick summary of how I remember the day.  It was brilliant! (There are plenty more photos to see over here too)   Continue reading »

Back in 2009, The Physio Co created our first Painted Picture vision of how our business would look, act & feel in three years time. One of the goals in that vision was that by 31 December 2012: “We have more than 50 fantastic team members that are appreciated for the great work  they do.”

Well, today is the day!  As of April 11, 2012 The Physio Co family has more than 50 members. Woohoo!! The Physio Co Painted Picture is coming to life.

Because our Painted Picture is designed to share the future of The Physio Co and attract people that are aligned to where we are headed.
