Ran nice and easy with Trinity for a 2.4 mile warmup. She is having some adjustment issues to the new baby, so I wanted to take her out for some time with just me and no baby. Seemed to help. She still isnt' completely back to full strength, but she was definitely more excited about going today! After dropping Trinity off at home, got out for an additional 2x 1 mile repeats before coming home to play with Cole. Finished the miles in 6:51 and then in 6:33 min. Felt really good for the first one, really labored through the second.
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!
