I loved being on holiday, and I am loving all the public holidays at the moment.
There is only one problem. It reminds me how much I like being at home. It makes coming in to work very difficult. I have been mumbling and moaning for the last 2 days (yes, that is all I have worked this month) about work. But then, just to make me feel extremely guilty, the company I work for goes and does something very surprising and totally out of the blue!
They called a meeting this morning to congratulate me on my Ironman performance, saying that I did the company proud and gave me a gift voucher for a massage. Yippee!!!! Damn… Now how am I going to complain?
For all my muttering and moaning I do really like the company. The CEO is great, and I love the fact that as a company we are so involved in various charities. For a small company we really do give quite a bit back. So much so that I knew when I asked them to sponsor me to run for a charity they would. It also made my Ironman more special to know that I was doing it for more than just myself and that some other people were benefiting too. Doing it with “Ironman 4 Kidz” really added to the experience and I would recommend to other PE people thinking of doing IMSA next year to think about doing it for them too.
