20 mile recovery ride
Quick morning ride out to Indian Head to loosen up my legs and hips before my second Criterium circuit race tomorrow afternoon. Felt fairly well, still pretty tight and had some issues with my shoulders, but overall loosened up pretty good. Looking forward to tomorrow!
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!
