Mtn Biking at Rosaryville State Park
Mtn biking at Rosaryville. There were a lot of changes to the course, but the two main log crossings were removed... not happy. Good ride overall though, got going at a good pace and felt strong throughout. After seeing Betsy and Trinity on my way in from the first loop, headed back out to catch back up with her. Continued on past her and then turned around at about 1.2 miles and met her back at the parking lot. Overall good end to a fun ride.
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!
