Poor weather again, with high winds and rain, so was relegated to an early morning trainer workout. Decided to do the Zoot Challenge, mostly a heavy gear and high cadence split workout. Did pretty well, although felt a bit light headed afterwards. Worked out pretty well considering I thought that there was a good chance I would wake Betsy and Cole up, but that wasn't the case. Looks like this winter will be filled with some morning trainer work!
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!
