Recovery Run with Trini
Running with Trinity out Accokeek Loop Route. After feeling crappy last couple days (been really stressed with work stuff, recoverying from the bachelor party and from my long ride Sat), decided to go for a nice easy run to loosen up. Started off at 9:10 min /mile, then dropped to 9:05, 8:46 then finally 8:27. Kept my heart rate low, just wanted to work out the tightness... think I succeeded!
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!
