getting in a 6.4 mile run
Running with Trinity for a longer run. Trying to keep HR around 160 bpm to ensure that I didn't drive Trinity too hard and wanted to get the max benefit from calorie burning. Felt pretty good most of the way, but ate some pineapple earlier and WHOOO-WEEEE was I gassy!
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!
