Out for a ride... 80 degrees again!
Riding MT Carmel but decided to extend by staying on RT225 to RT210. Felt ok, meant for this to be a fairly easy ride, turned out to be a bit more than I expected, but overall ok. I really need some discipline to keep myself from going hard tomorrow. Perhaps the bachelor party tonight will leave me hurting enough tomorrow so that I won't be able to go hard? Beer, the natural anti-workout...
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!
