Back in the Saddle Again

Race Season has started again! Weather pending, we are packing up the new car with our race gear each weekend. There have been several sunny weekends so far this year, and the hubs has already gotten out for quite a few races this season. We are already seeing SUCH an improvement in results this year. I really think that the knowledge of the courses and a better expectation of what Colorado racing means has leveled the playing field. Last year was such a struggle just to figure out the new level of competition, but we're already seeing top 10 and top 20 results in all of the races so far!!

These next two weekends host three of the "favorite" courses from last year, so we are excited to see how the 2014 results pan out.

Let's Try This Again...

In one week from today, we have another new team member joining our company. She has been brought on to take a boat-load of work back from me, which will finally give some relief from when the last person left in February. The last two months have been hard, especially when I found that a lot of little pieces had been missed and forgotten by the person who left. So there was a lot of clean-up work to be done. I think we're back in a good place, but the amount of work is just piling higher and higher again. I will be so happy to remove this big chunk of work from my plate!

My gut is telling me to beware of getting too happy about this transition though. At least not yet... The person they've hired is older, and I'm hoping that means that she will be able to just come right in and pick up the work. I just hope that my gut is being wary about it because I've been thrown to the wolves a few times this last year. I will be so pleasantly surprised if all goes well, and everything just works itself out.

With my Duathlon and my 10K Run in May, I really need to find more time at the gym. So if this crazy over-time can stop in the next couple of weeks, that would just be so ideal...
