Time for an update

So I figure that its been a while and i haven't posted any of the exciting/stressful things i've been doing. So, here goes.

At the end of January Chem-Dry had its national convention in Hawaii (I didn't get to go) and they presented the last six months of my work consisting of about 30 lessons of content and the main portion of Chem-Dry University (CDU). I was stoked that it is finally up but there is still so much room for growth.

Last week I got to "run the show" for new buyer class. Jotham was out of town on other training events and Linda is no longer with the company. Suffice it to say that I ended up teaching presentations that I have never done before (most of which I did very well). The class was a great test of my patience. They were constantly asking random, not applicable, seemingly unimportant questions.

I had Saturday off and Sunday I flew to Calgary, Alberta Canada. This is my first time to Canada. I am actually in Canada as I write this. I have a little time to kill before dinner. I am here for the Chem-Dry Canada convention. Cool eh? Anyway I helped present Tile and Stone Cleaning and will do workshops on it and PURT tomorrow. Then I get to go home and take a few days off.

Meanwhile I have been training for a marathon. I was thinking of running the Ogden marathon but it filled up before I signed up. I am now trying to decide between doing SLC or Bear Lake or both. Or maybe I do one as a half marathon. Anywho, we'll see.

I ran 14 miles on Saturday in the snow and somehow I have been able to maintain my pace right around 8 min per mile. That was the same pace I ran the 5 mile run leg of the Cache Valley Biathlon in the spring. Cool.
