Evening trainer workout.
Pouring rain, terribly cold so I had to give up my aspirations of biking or running outside and hopped on the trainer. As I am now officially back into marathon training now and have an 8 mile long run tomorrow, I decided to do an easy workout, the Spinervals Ride Strong effort. Was fairly easy, but still got in a good effort.
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!
