YBBlue? Ask Tracy Patman!

First and foremost, explain what is your leaderboard name and what is its genesis

When I first got my bike in November 2017, I wasn’t thinking much about what my leaderboard should be, so originally I was #TracyP63.   So unimaginative! When I got back to riding and joined this tribe, I wanted something catchier and that embodied who I am.   After my 100th ride, I made the decision to change my LB name and I chose #YBBlue – I have a perpetually sunny and positive disposition and the LB name evolves from my personalized car tag which has donned the YBBLUE name for 15 years.

  • Favorite musician – Is this really a fair question? This has changed so many times in my life, but in my youth, the Bee Gees had a great impact on me.

    When I started out in my career, as a cooperative education student working for the federal government and in the early years after I graduated, I went to sea onboard oceanographic survey ships taking sonar images of the ocean bottom for antisubmarine warfare. Our surveys were 30 days long and we spent 7 days in port between surveys. It was an awesome way to see the world, even though some of the places weren’t exactly tourist destinations.   On my first trip, in port in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, being more tan than most of my shipmates, I was almost taken in by the Guardia Civil when going back to the ship because they mistook me for a local and thought I was a hooker LOL. This was my first trip ever to go anywhere. At 19, that was a tad traumatizing!

Anything else you’d like to share? When I got my bike in November of 2017 I barely rode and had only ridden 21 times when I took my first Jenn ride on June 5 and discovered this tribe.   Since June 5th I have ridden 275 times! (#300 is planned for December 5th). As I got to know this tribe, I became part of something greater, and found a place I had been longing for.   We laugh, cry and celebrate together and even across many miles, it feels like there is no distance or time.

 

 

 

Buffinda34…WHO IS SHE? Let’s Find Out!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis: It’s #Buffinda34. I’m the youngest of 5 kids & born at a time siblings didn’t come up to the hospital. They asked my Dad what I looked like, to which he responded, “A Buffy,” because of my blond fuzz for hair. It stuck & morphed into other nicknames off of the original.It’s a homage to my Dad, who unfortunately died from a heart attack when I was 13. As for 34, it’s always been my fav #, from it being the basketball # for a guy I had a crush on in HS (who didn’t know I existed) to currently Jonny Lester’s # for my beloved Cubbies.

Annie and I now have an annual NYC trip, so we went in January 2018 and rode with JSS and Cody and then we went this past January 2019 and rode with JSS, Cody, Alex, and Denis.

I absolutely love Peloton and I love this tribe! All of you and our fearless leader, Jenn, inspire me and motivate me every day. Last year in March of 2018 on my one year peloversary, I shared on the OPP that I bought my peloton 2.5 months after my precious Dad passed away. He and I were extremely close and now 25 months after his passing, I am still heartbroken and devastated. I use this bike as therapy every day as I am grieving and mourning his loss. One of the signs that shows me that my Dad is with me is that I see his name everywhere…on TV, on signs while driving, in commercials, etc… His name is Royal and he went by Roy. There have been numerous times that I have seen a leaderboard name while riding with “Roy” or “Royal” in it. This is so special to me as it is a sign that my Dad is watching over me…even when I am riding. Thank you for reading! J

I am not so lucky so I need this bike to help me lose and remain fit and healthy, it’s a struggle. This bike and community have been an amazing addition to my life. With my job, I am always either buried in work in my home office or traveling. I get up and ride before work and it helps tremendously. I love my job, I love my family life and I love my Peloton peeps. I am grateful to be part of this community.( though I miss the interaction with Jenn on the FB page and hate the Peloton rule regarding that issue)

WHO IS MIRIAM FEFFER?

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is its genesis

#Feffer…Before I got the bike, I wanted people who knew me in real life to be able to find me on the LB. Now, I only care about connecting with Pelo-friends and wish I had chosen something creative.

Personal Info:

Name:  Miriam Feffer

Where do You live?  Washington, DC

Married/Single? Married. My husband started a job in New York in February, so he stays there during the week, which means I’m effectively a single parent Monday-Friday. I got the Peloton to ensure that I could get some exercise and maintain a tenuous hold on my sanity.

Kids/Grandkids I have one energetic, outspoken third-grader, Abby. She likes to ride, so I just made her a separate account to stop her from juking my stats. She’s oddly tall and athletic. (I am neither.)

We currently have 2 robot fish, Fin and Drifter. Two summers ago, we rented chickens for a month. It was the perfect experiment in pet care, with minimal commitment and wonderful fresh eggs. I’m sure Click and Cluck, the Pullet Sisters, are now comfortably ensconced in another family’s yard/stock pot.

Working/Retired? I’m Vice President for Development at HIAS, the global Jewish refugee agency, where I oversee an incredibly dedicated team of advancement professionals. My dad was a refugee from Hitler’s Europe, so this shit is deeply personal. As you may have heard, we were the organization named by the Pittsburgh shooter as the cause of his rage. It’s been an overwhelming few months, to say the least, but my bike – and this community – have been a source of strength and comfort.

On a lighter note, I began my career as an anthropologist, studying the ways young people talk about their bodies in a summer camp context. I believe I remain unchallenged as the academic authority on the practice of naming the penis!

Do you have a motto in which you live by? You look hungry. Eat something.

  • How long have you had your bike – 9 months
  • Where in your home do you ride – basement
  • What is your favorite Color – blue (cobalt, specifically)
  • What is your favorite food – Ice cream. All the ice cream.
  • What is your favorite TV Show – I love TV and am hard-pressed to pick a fave but will drop everything at the first strains of the “Golden Girls” theme. (I’m a Sophia.) If you enjoy 80s rides and haven’t seen “GLOW,” get your ass on Netflix now. Finally, if anyone from Amazon’s production team is listening, I’d love to give the star of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” a cameo on a flashback epi of “Transparent” – she’d be long-lost cousin Miriam Pfefferman!
  • Have you ever ridden in studio – Yes, with JSS, Denis, Ally, and Christine. My favorite Mothership experience to date was Bullshit Milestone Sunday. If I do nothing else constructive with my life, I invented a legit(ish) holiday!
  • Who would you like to ride with – 1) My fellow Milestone Maniacs: #YBBlue, #Buffinda34, #GooniesNvrSayDi, and #SpinningKally. 2) I’m not-so-secretly obsessed with #BamaGuy’s habits and cordially invite him to join me under the disco ball. 3) I’ve been fortunate to ride with a bunch of you in the studio and Bethesda, MD showroom. You’re too numerous to name but all great company!
  • Guilty Pleasure – A few years ago, my mom downsized, so I had to get my junk out of her house. I discovered an enormous trove of old letters from my lovelorn teen years. They’re alternately poignant, disgusting, mortifying, hilarious, and faintly scented with perm solution. I read them at random when I need a pick-me-up.
  • Favorite Curse word – I mean, “fuck” is a classic, right? It’s so versatile: you can use it as an intensifier (“JFDI”), to refer to actual sex, to express anger (“fuck you”), confusion (“WTF”), disgust (“fucked up”), frustration (“fuck me”), desire (ibid.). It’s the Swiss Army Knife of profanity.

When my daughter was in kindergarten, she confessed that she had learned “the F word.” She wouldn’t tell me what the word was but eventually agreed to spell it. To my chagrin, she left out the C. I’m a former citywide spelling champ, bee-topped trophy and all. No child of mine misspells “fuck”!

  • Favorite musician – Anyone on any 70s or 80s playlist floats my boat.
  • Morning or night – Morning. I’m sure whatever happens at night is delightful, but I don’t care to find out.
  • Last Book You Read – 1) Homegoing. Run, don’t walk, to read this searing multigenerational saga of the impact of slavery on one family. (It’s not a beach read, but there are uplifting moments.) 2) Dietland, recently made into a so-so TV show, is a viciously insightful satire of embodiment, anger, self-discovery, and the absurdity of lipstick.
  • Who’s the Last Person who texted you – My mom, who still hasn’t figured out that she doesn’t need to sign texts. Oy.
  • Favorite App – Facebook is a terrible habit for the nosy and distractible.
  • Favorite Sport – Does spelling count? (See above.)
  • Favorite Sports Team – I’m not a big athletic supporter, as they say. I’m on the board of my daughter’s school, so…go, Milton Pandas!
  • Fave Alcoholic Beverage – I’m more of an eater than a drinker, but a little something sparkling is always nice.
  • What Color is your toothbrush – Off-white. (Sonicare.)
  • Do you have a favorite cartoon character – She’s not (usually) a cartoon, but Miss Piggy represents a certain ideal of confidence and panache to moi.
  • Coffee or tea – Coffee before noon, tea anytime.
  • What time do you go to bed – Ideally 10.
  • Fave Reality TV show – “American Ninja Warrior” and “Kids Baking Championship”
  • What is something we’d be surprised to know about you? I grew up partly in Toronto. I’m very loud for a Canadian. Still hoping JSS will do a Canadian Rock Ride to welcome our Tribemates from the Great White North.
  • Dinner guest – You’re all invited. I’m an avid baker, so save room for dessert.
  • Marry/F/Kill-Robin Arzon, Jenn Sherman or JJ OR Matt Wilpers, Alex T. or Denis
    1. F: Robin. I get the occasional urge to take her class, we spend a memorable hour together, and then I fade away without cuddling or calling. We’re at it again a few weeks later, no strings attached.
    2. M: Denis and I are already married. Don’t tell my husband. Also, don’t tell Denis. He thinks we’re just friends.
    3. K: Can you kill someone with kindness and friendship? If so, there’s a special place in my heart for our beloved Jenn.

WHO IS JENNY_GIRL? LET’S FIND OUT!

Leaderboard Get To Know You

First and foremost explain what is your leaderboard name and what is it’s genesis

There was a group of girls that I used to do Triathlons with. We would workout together and travel to do a few races every summer. Of the group of about 50 girls there were two that were my closest friends. One of them started calling me “Jenny Girl.” Because the three of us were different ages we would all start and finish the races at different times so that made it easy for us to cheer and support each other and I would always hear them yell out “Come on Jenny Girl!” Due to injury and children my friends both left the group and it was not the same without them. That lead me to my Peloton and when it was time to choose a name I knew I had to be “Jenny_Girl” so they would always be with me.

Anything else you’d like to share:

For me Peloton and the community in just 1 year has truly been one of the best experiences of my life. When I was in High School I was very active as a Manager for Football, Basketball, and Baseball.  I was not a great athlete, especially with Contact sports, but I knew I loved sports and love to help others but I never took time for my own fitness.  After HS I began to spin at a local gym, but with two part time jobs and college courses I could only make it maybe 2 times a week.  On  Oct. 13,2017 when I decided it was time to try my mom’s bike and took my first ride OD with JSS and the addiction was instant.  My first trip to the studio was when I met Jenn in person and she has been there for me with great advice, love and support.  So far I have lost over 15 pounds, and have never felt better in my life.  I love to ride Live when my schedule allows, but what I love most is the convenience of riding when I want and as long as I want.

JSS has my favorite playlists and although I am 27 , her tunes are totally for me.

HRI2018 was like going to the Super Bowl for me, where I had the opportunity to meet so many face to face.  The JSSTRIBE, admins, and members are so special.   I have to   mention David Barnett who has become a mentor to me, and there isn’t enough room to list everyone, but you know who you are.  Through social media I have developed wonderful friendships, I want to thank everyone for everything, the encouragement, high fives and advice I receive daily.

So thankful for this Tribe and all it is.

Peloton has been so amazing for me and most importantly I found an exercise program that is perfect and I can say I am “Off the Sidelines” and found my passion
