How did you participate?

For the most part, I just kept on doing what I usually do - power zone training that entails 5 training rides a week and two "off" days where I'll do a low-impact ride. The first weekend of this event just happened to coincide with another virtual event, Pelofondo, which led to me racking up quite a few miles at first.

My son joined me at the gym in the afternoons. The challenge really held me accountable for staying active. Although I have a 1-year-old toddler, there were no excuses!

How did you participate?

I am a Peloton fanatic, and this challenge helped motivate me to consistently start my day with a workout. Whether it was strength training or spinning, I kicked off my day with 30 minutes of physical activity and then added in walks, yoga, etc. throughout the day.

As the Director of Professional Services within the Telehealth team, I work with hospitals to help integrate Dialer video and audio into their workflows.
