Hitting the trail
Mountain biking at Rosaryville forward loop. Betsy walked/jogged the reverse loop at the same time. Felt fairly good the entire ride, didn't get to go too hard, still trying to get my balance back, but overall a great ride. After finishing the loop, turned around to meet Betsy and trinity before walking back to parking lot.
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!
