Out on a hot humid day with Trinity
Running with the little one on the new extended course. Tried to keep it easy at about an 8:30 pace as I didn't want to work too hard before the race on Sunday. However, with the heat it was still really tough. Still can't figure out why my HR monitor keeps screwing up either.
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!
