Running with Trinity. Started out nice and easy with the plan of going 8 miles. However, felt really good and pushed on past 8 for a total of a 10 mile run. Trinity started bailing toward the end, but in true tough little Trinity, she held out for me and we had a great run! Run includes a couple hills, most notably a 19% grade at 4.1 miles in. Avg around 8:50 min/mile. There is two houses where I had to stop and yell at some dogs that tried to chase us though!
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!
