Trainer work again...
I hate the shorter days, I can't get up and go for a run early, because its too dark, but its tough to do anything outdoors when I get home, as I would have to leave work at 3:30 or so... hurumphh... oh well. So, because of this issue I had to do another trainer workout when I got home around 5:30. Knowing I have just over a week before the marathon, I decided tonights workout would be my last difficult, high intensity effort, so I chose to do Spinerval's Suffer-O-Rama, which focuses on high gearing while doing alot of standing and seated intervals. Really tough workout.
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!
