Went for the Mt. Carmel ride before work this morning. Again, had the same breathing issue this morning, that feeling where you can't seem to pull in a full breath, but aren't exactly short of breath... really wierd. Anway, had a reasonable ride, avg'd around 19mph for the 28 mile loop, but got a flat at the base of the first hill, so that really sucked. Overall, can't complain though, got in a nice ride to get me ready for the work day... Gotta love flex hours
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!
