5 mile tempo run
going for an early morning tempo run before work. Shooting for 5 miles at below 8 min/mile pace and did just that. Finished the miles in 8:09, 7:57, 7:43, 7:50, 7:32 min/mile and finished the last 0.4 miles at 7:11 min/mile pace. Felt ok, not great but not bad either. Overall it was a good run and now I can look forward to a recovery week.
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!
