Great Ride (7/10/2008)
NEW PR!!! Beat my previous best time on the Mt Carmel course by over a minute! Avg 19.9 mph over the 27.9 mile course. Felt pretty strong throughout, had some laboring towards the end, but pushed through it once I saw that a PR was within reach. Hopefully I didn't overdo it before Muddy Buddy! Avg Cad 91
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!
