Running with the little one
Thought I would run 6 miles today, but I have been having issues with my left knee. There is a tightness behind my knee, not sure what it is, but it kept me from finishing and I cut it short at 4 miles. Felt pretty crappy overall, hopefully my bike ride tomorrow will go better!
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!
