Gretchen joins us for the podcast. From Stanford rowing to UCSD pre med, smoke jumping to going pro at cycling, Gretchen can do it all. She is super tough and strong. She also has the mental fortitude to suffer like no other. We talk about her start into the sport of cycling as well as some of her adventures off the bike which includes her jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and landing in a tree. We also talk about what it was like to race in Europe as well as some of her future goals and aspirations. She even shares with us some of her top picks for the Olympic cycling events in Rio. We also talk about the accident that happened with John Abate. It was a hit and run event where I car struck him from behind and fled the scene. This cowardly move put John into the ICU where he is undergoing several surgeries. The most important thing people can do is to be on the lookout for a white mid sized SUV or crossover driven by a middle aged male. There are most likely marks or damage to the car. Please get their license plate and call the police. Also you can send well wishes to John via my website or on social media. I’m sure he appreciates it and we are all pulling for him. Stay strong John!
