out for a run
Running with Trinity before dinner. Felt pretty good, hence the quickening pace during each subsequent miles 8:15, 8:06, 8:00, 8:06, 7:57, 7:31 (8:02 overall). Was pretty warm, but was just a great day for a run. Got in 5.4 miles and felt really good, despite the longer ride yesterday!
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!
