It has been unbearable. And I can’t even get excited about the pun this time.

Going the Distance, Again and Again

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

…So how was your weekend? For Sarah Pribram, our Vice President of Marketing Services, and Jason Baer, our Director of Analysis and Forecasting, it was a good one, indeed.
