Training & movies
Mary got on her new trainer for the first time yesterday. She set it up in front of the TV in the basement and rode about five miles while watching the cycling movie Breaking Away. We watched this 1979 bike classic during our first JDRF trip to Death Valley. On the bus ride from the Las Vegas airport to Death Valley Coach Mike popped in the DVD of the movie. The rest of the weekend had a sort of Italian feel. It was capped off near the end of the ride when a female tourist from Genoa asked Joe Schmieder for directions. Watch the movie and you'll understand the reference. Also, it stars a very young Dennis Quaid in a supporting role.
