Out for a short ride
Out for my first ride post-Cole! It was SUPER painful to pull myself away for the 1 hour ride, but I have had some mild migraines from lack of activity so it was definitely necessary. Only went for a short ride down to Indian Head, but still felt good to get out. A pretty strong headwind, and I was really tight, so I only avg 19.3 mph. Avg Cad 89 RPM.
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!
