Evening recovery run.
Got out for a nice and easy run. Was really busy at work, so I never got to go during the day, so I got out when I got home, getting in about 5.35 miles. Kept the pace between 8:20-8:30 min/mile, finishing with an 8:22 pace overall. Miles were finished in 8:23, 8:21, 8:21, 8:27, 8:23 and then I finished the final 1/3 of a mile at 8:07 pace. Felt ok, but really sore for some reason. Still feel the same, but overall ok. It is supposed to snow tomorrow, so I have a feeling that I will be doing an indoor trainer 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!
