Tough Run with Trinity
Running with Trinity. Felt tight and tired the whole way (it was 80 degrees) and so did Trinity, poor girl kept falling behind and looking up at me with sad eyes (black fur ain't no fun in the sun!), so we cut it short and did 4.3 instead of the 6 that we were planning on. May be overtraining a bit so need to think about taking it easy tomorrow and/or Sunday.
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!
