training: erg 20m: 4.83km; Silver Spring 53°F

I did not manage to train this morning and today was one of those days – by the time I got home I was tired, hungry, and mentally shattered, and dejected in a way that tends to end in junk food and alcohol. But I have been reading about a brave two year old named Rogan who is battling lymphocytic leukemia and thought what kind of day had she had. I then read an email from MC saying that Maddie, a friend of her daughter, lost her battle with leukemia yesterday – she was 25. And that was it: a quick change out of my suit and, since it was too late to ride, down to the dungeon and onto the erg.

So today is for Maddie – requiescat in pace.
