Hilly Run Take 2
Longer run at Karen's. OUCH, wow these hills are brutal. Got in a bit under 7 miles, but the second neighborhood was essentially one long climb. Good for a change, but definitely wouldn't want this all the time. Got my miles in 8:52, 8:35, 8:37, 9:19, 8:28, 9:47 and then slowed considerably for the final 0.8 miles. tough run.
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!
