Back on the road (to recovery)!
Finally felt good enough to get out and run again, so Betsy and I went out for my birthday run! Only went 2.6 miles, trying to start slow to make sure I am over this cold, but felt pretty good! Trinity got to go with us again too! What a birthday gift that is! A semi-healthy running dog! She did struggle a bit towards the end, but still, baby steps to happiness! Well this was my last workout of this year, leaving the most successful year of RidingforaCause that I have had yet! Looking forward to next year! More details to follow in January!
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!
