Certified Restoration Participates in World Famous Mud Run

Team Certified Restoration

June 3 2013

For our quarterly team-building event, Certified Restoration‘s staff participated in the World Famous Mud Run at Camp Pendleton! We were so excited as we climbed in our cars at 6 a.m. and headed north. Once we arrived, we got checked in and anxiously awaited our wave time to called.

At 9:30, the horn blew and we were off! There were about 12 obstacles throughout the 10k course, including rope climbs, hay bale jumps, mud pit swimming and crawling, and many more! It took us a little over an hour and a half to complete and as we crossed the finish line we were covered from head to toe in mud. It was such a blast and a great team-building activity. We all ran together and helped one another over tall walls with mud pits on both sides. Joey, our designated “Morale Captain” kept our spirits up by encouraging us throughout the race.

After we finished, we met up with our competitors, Taxco Restoration and Olympic Carpet, to determine that Taxco came in first place, Certified Restoration in second, and Olympic in third. We had such a great time and can’t wait for next year!

Olympic Carpet Holds Customer Appreciation Day

May 10, 2013

Olympic Carpet of El Cajon, CA, one of our partners, celebrated Customer Appreciation Day today! They grilled up some tasty beef and chicken tacos with lots of fresh toppings, rice and beans, chips, cookies, and even rice pudding!

George, Lacy, and Leo went to visit and had a great time meeting new people and seeing old friends. We learned more about the growing popularity of bamboo and wood flooring, and even got to watch Lee Fahouris, Owner, demonstrate how to use some of the products they were giving away.

Certified Restoration’s Staff will take on Olympic Carpet’s Staff on June 1st at the Camp Pendleton Mud Run, so of course there was some playful banter about whose team will be victorious. We all know that Certified Restoration will be pulling off the win!

Celebrating the Annual San Diego Greek Festival – Opa!

Serving up some yummy Greek Food

June 10th 2013

This past weekend, St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church held its annual Greek Festival. We volunteered at the Saganaki booth and fed flaming Greek cheese to lots of hungry visitors! It was a hit! There were many different food options, including spanakopita, pastitsio, dolmades, baklava, and so much more!  In the beer garden, ouzo and cold imported beers were flowing. Live music and dancing was right by the Saganaki tent, so we were able to watch and enjoy that, as well.

If you weren’t able to make it this year, we recommend that you mark your calendars for next year. The festival is a wonderful event for everyone!
