While the individual team members have been training on their own, we started our weekly team training runs last weekend. It was great to start putting in the miles on the bike alongside teammates. It helps us build camaraderie and collectively push our cycling limits. This weekend we have a 24 hour relay ride planned to begin to get a feel of riding around the clock and the kinds of things we’ll need from our support crew.

We are also excited to be working with film maker Kevin Schlanser to capture the Race Across America journey on film and bring awareness to Friedreich’s ataxia research.
