running before work. Tried to keep it nice and easy at about an 8:15 to 8:30 min/mile pace. Felt really tired though, think I might have overtrained a bit this past weekend, so I need to be sure to take it easier this week before the 1/2 marathon on Monday. Overall, kept the pace I wanted and called it quits once I got past 5 miles.
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!
