Running in Charlottesville
So we came out to visit Betsy's mom this weekend and so biking is out! Therefore went for a nice 4 mile run this morning in the 30 degree weather and got acclimated to running on hills again! WOW forgot how much those little 'bumps' in the road can influence your running difficulty! Anyway, Trinity was really happy that she got to go, she was still angry with me for cutting our last run short! Will hopefully get to get another run in tomorrow morning before we head back to DC.
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
