Hitting the Trails
Mountain biking at Rosaryville State Park. Out relatively easy, as it has been a while since I have been on that trail. There have been a number of changes too. Only two other riders on the trail with me, both going the opposite direction. Felt ok, didn't quite have all the strength I am used to, but considering the fact that I haven't been outside riding much, I am not overly surprised. Overall, good ride and lots of fun!
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!
