Todd was leaving today to head back out west after a great weekend with us. I too am leaving for the night to head up to Boston for a DARPA review, and will be visiting with Kotch and Katie and their new little one Taylor! Will be tough leaving Cole for the first time ever though! Anyway, since I won't get the chance to get out tonight or tomorrow, figured I would get in a short run this morning. Got in a quick 5K out and back on Livingston Rd. Felt pretty good, kept under 8 min/mile the whole way.
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!
