After taking some time off around the holidays, it's been a crazy start to 2015! It has been very busy for both our sales and our operations sides of the business. We have started multiple new accounts this year, and have more opportunities on the table. These opportunities have come from either new relationships with City Wide or growing relationships with our current clients.
I have managed to stay active in my personal life as well. My wife, Jennae, and I have been figuring out the new parents thing. Our gorgeous daughter is 4.5 months old now and I couldn’t be more obsessed with her! I’m not sure if the level of excitement I have when she learns something new is healthy or not, but I get so excited watching her grow!
I am also in the midst of the cross country ski season, racing for the City Wide Maintenance Nordic Team. Although the lack of snow has made training/racing more complicated and has even caused a few races to either be cancled or shortened, it has still been fun. Two of my four biggest races of the year are in the books now. I have competed in the US National Championships in Houghton, MI as well as the Seeley Hills Classic Ski Marathon in Seeley, WI. Next up on the major race calendar is the Vasaloppet. Then, I end the season with the American Birkibeiner. I will also be racing in a few local smaller races, to help prepare for the big races.
