Longest run of the new year!
New 8 mile route! Great run! Took trinity out slower, got comfortable and then decided to keep going! Ended up going exactly 8 miles at just under 9 min/mile. Not too bad for my longest run of the year! Trinity was even tired by the end! That NEVER happens! Burned off 1201 calories in the process.
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!
