There was definitely something happening during the "Spin for Speedy" at Gold's Gym Monday night.  I think he was taking us for a ride!

My friend Kelsey and I were amazed at the energy we had while spinning and listening to nearly the exact sound track of the last time Jeret "Speedy" Peterson took part in a spin class at the gym. The instructor Ms. Marilee had dubbed the track "Sad Loss" due to the Nevada defeat of BSU last year. She was quite amazed at that title after the death of Speedy last week.

Marilee did a great job remembering Speedy. She even added one extra song in his tribute Tuesday night: "I Believe I Can Fly".

I think we all did just that, we flew through that hour long work out like we were riding on air, riding on the wings of Speedy!

Here are the songs that Speedy liked so much, Marilee gave him her extra copy:

  • Closer to the Edge
  • Be Myself
  • Megadeath-Demon Knight
  • Linkin Park-Bleed it Out
  • ELO Blinded by the Light
  • Breathe Me
  • Stay Together For the Kids
  • Beastie Boys-You Gotta Fight for Your Right to Party
  • Don't Bring Me Down
  • Eyes Open
  • Same Direction
  • Love Left To Lose
  • Goodbye for Now
  • I Believe I can Fly
  • May Angels Lead You In
  • No One like You
  • Farewell/Goodbye
