Last run before BAY-BAH!!!
Running first thing Monday morning before work. Trying to get in one last run before the baby birthin' tomorrow, since "I don't know nuttin' bout birthin' no babies!". Good run overall, maintained approx. 8 min miles, finishing the last mile in 6:48! Miles in 8:13, 8:08, 8:10, 8:19, 8:14, 8:07, 8:10, 6:49. Unfortunately, Trinity couldn't join me and it doesn't appear she will be able to in the near future :-(
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!
