Yesterday I participated in my first spin-a-thon, Spin Odyssey, with exhale Stamford at Fairway Market to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness. I cycled for 2 hours with awesome instructors, music and energy that made the time fly by. I wish I had signed up for another hour. $200,000 and counting was raised!
