Personal Record on Accokeek Loop!
Running with Trinity. Started off easy early on, after an 8 min mile 1, finished with a 7:40,7:38 and a 7:11 min miles. Felt pretty strong and didn't labor until the very end. Can't wait to get my HR monitor back and to hit Track practice again this week. The baby is due in a month, so gotta get my hardest work in now!
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!
