Running in the drizzling rain...
Running with Trinity. Added a little extra loop out Farmington, over Bryan point and then back to the usual course to add on about 1.2 miles. Felt ok, still having issues getting into a rhythm again. Felt 100X better about 2-3 weeks ago... miles in 8:25, 8:22, 8:01, 8:02, 7:35 and then the final 1/3 mile at 7:12 pace
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!
