Back at it after weekend with the Boy
Indian Head out and back extended. Included the hill on Marshall Hall Rd (~11% grade at max) toward the beginning and then tried to incorporate an offcut on the way out. Think I know how to add in a quick additional loop next time. Overall, felt better than I have recently, mostly because I took a Zyrtec-D instead of just plain Zyrtec this morning. Have been feeling really congested recently due to allergies.
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!
