First Run in San Francisco to Coit Tower
Running on Easter Sunday in San Francisco! WOW huge hills, a 31 percent grade on Kearny street then again climbing up to Coit Tower. Took a quick break at the top to take in the scenery. Incredible view, makes me glad that I took the initiative and went for a run this morning before we went out for breakfast with Brett and Elisha.
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!
