Team FARA Blog

Team FARA members are running, walking, biking and swimming for FA research around the world.

While they are geographically dispersed, Team FARA is united with the same goal: to draw attention to FA through acts of physical endurance and to support the advancement of FA research towards treatments and a cure for FA.

We just surpassed the distance, in 6 days, that the pro competitors in Tour de France do in 3 weeks!



Yet another transition

Transitions keep happening, different times different places... It
kinda like life always adapting to situations and circumstances but
the main thing is that not all transitions are smooth sometimes they
don't go exactly as planned but if you push hard you will reach the
finish! Oh and just for the record I think the crew has our
transitions down to a science now... Haha it was a little rough going
in the beginning lol! Like when john left the transition area even
though the other ride hadn't made it there yet, we got the
comunication going now though!!!

Can't sleep

Can't sleep

I can't sleep so I thought I'd try to download some thoughts.

I felt a positive shift in the morale entire team tonight as John and
I finished our riding shift. We had been getting a little sloppy with
our communication and rider/crew transitions and everyone was getting
a little frustrated...each person realized that something needed to
change so the crew got together briefly and addressed the concerns and
will work to make our machine run more efficiently. We are riding fast
and feeling great so if we clean up our act just a bit we will be in
Annapolis in no time. We can taste the finish line and it tastes great!

The Cyclist

Sean Baum shows up the "biker" in the background. With powerful legs like those, who needs a motor?

Team FARA: Into Missouri

Hot and humid. Concentrating on staying Hydrated. NUUN is key!

    Tracking you guys from work in Boston, Mass. You are covering some ground! B/T/W, don't know if you can catch any of it but the Celtics - Lakers epic game 7 tonight might provide a good distraction. Regards to the TEAM and Crew.
