Hot Hot Hot...
Running without Trinity again :-( Dicked around all morning including sleeping in and ended up not leaving to run until about 10AM, OUCH!!! 87 F at 67% Humidity made it feel like 96 F! I guess this will teach me to be lazy in the morning during the summer in the future! Did keep a good pace however, maintaining a sub 8 min/mile pace for the run and actually felt fine until about mile 3, labored a bit after that though. OVerall, good run considering the circumstances... now off to the driving range with Lonnell and then hopefully to the pool!
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!
