Spin-a-thon! Pelotonia Rocks!

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

Today was what we called the Final Push for our Giving Campaign at work. (Similar to United Way but we do it just within the company.) Battelle goes all out when it comes to giving back to the community. There was ping-pong, basketball, putt putt, cornhole and a Spinning competition. We had our three Cycling Causes well represented - Tour de Cure (diabetes), Pan Ohio (cancer) and Pelotonia (cancer). I was captain of the Pelotonia team and apparently recruited very well! We had teams of four members - one female per group - and we each road for 15 minutes - ALL OUT! The team with the most mileage won and I am proud to say it was the Pelotonia team! We beat the TdC team by a solid 2 kms and we had a ball. Now I will admit it was probably the longest 15 minutes of my life and I totally wanted to puke by the end - people were watching and the smell of popcorn was not appetizing at all! But we persevered and won $100 from the credit union for our charity! I've attached a picture of the entire group - all three teams and of the winning team!
