LiveFit Challenge Week 1: Dr. Utrie’s Update

Dr. John Utrie is a fellowship-trained urogynecologist and OB/GYN at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.  

So I’m sitting in my office working on oodles of paperwork when our CSR timidly sticks her head in and says, “There is someone here to give you something.”

Her expression was a combination of puzzlement and fear, as she is used to me chasing away every product rep that casts a shadow.  Balancing my desire to chase away all unwanted guests, and needing an excuse to stop working on all my paperwork,  I had her invite the folks back to the office.

I was pretty surprised to see a team of three eager grins.  They looked so happy.  They were here to inform me I was selected to participate in the triathlon training.  My first immediate thought was “there goes my morning doughnut” followed quickly by “maybe I can keep eating them until my first fitness assessment”.

Presented with a little goodie bag, containing a nifty shirt,  my thoughts turned to “will it fit?” and “I hope I don’t have to take my shirt off.”

Now, I just wonder if I can avoid excuses and injury to get this done with style!
