And Trinity is BACK!!!
After about a 3 week hiatus due to a toe issue, little Trinity was finally healed up and ready to roll. This morning we went for a fairly easy 4 mile run, keeping it slow at 8:30 pace to make sure we didn't go too long or too fast for her as I am sure she lost a bit of fitness in the layoff. She was tired at the end and clearly wasn't in top form, but she is back and I now have my running partner again!
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!
