And it will be a sucky one. Sorry.
I'll be in a CIC class (Ceritified Insurance Counselor) Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week. Twenty hours of instruction followed immediately by a 20 question test. I'm taking the Commercial Casualty course this week, and I'll have to take four more courses to earn the CIC designation. With the designation, though I'm not going to the courses for this reason, I could get my agent/broker license and move to insurance sales. Maybe I'll open my own agency and hire every Alabama and Auburn quarterback for the next 20 years. That seems to be the trend. I'm really just going to the course to get a better understanding of actual policy language. Weird that I've been doing this for 10 years now and I've never read some of the policies that I buy. Actually, weird isn't the right term. Dereliction of duty would be more accurate.
Good luck to Brandon, Christie, John, and every one else running in the Mercedes Marathon or Half Marathon this weekend. I know that it's easy for me to say, but the hard part - the months and months and miles and miles of training - is over for you guys. Go out and enjoy yourselves, take in the sights, thank a volunteer, and then reward yourself with something that you've deprived yourself of for the last 4 months.
Again, good luck. My thoughts will be with you even though my fat ass won't.
Have a good week.
