Winter weather and a major snow storm kept me inside spinning on the trainer. A solid week with 6+ hours of bike time and 125 miles on the odometer. On Monday, I logged 20 miles to the new Ray Romano show "Men of a Certain Age." I guess I relate to it as the show depicts three guys in their late 40's. Thanks to Gary Calabreese for a donation ... he has sponsored me for 5 years! Tuesday was spent working and on the website as well as fundraising. Donations received from Jim Leonard (silver level) and Barbara Eberhard (4th year).
On Wednesday I pushed 25 miles to a new Criminal Minds epsiode. My high school friends from USY jumped on board the donation train ... thanks to Bob Sulloway and his wife Gail (2nd year) for a silver level donation and Carol Fishman (3rd year). Carol's mom is a lung cancer survivor. She and her doctor caught it when it was at stage 1A! We are glad she went in for a chest x-ray after a nagging cough. If she hadn't, then she would probably not be alive now. Lung cancer is so deadly because generally it's not found until stage 3 or 4 when it's too late. She is one of the rare success stories. She was a former smoker, but she hadn't smoked for 27 years. My ride helps researchers with new and better detection testing.
