Lunchtime run with Mike P
Got out for a 10k run around lunchtime today, breaking up the day quite nicely. For some reason my GPS battery was dead, so I didn't get to track my miles, but finished in 51:32.74. Not too bad overall. The day was overcast, but it was a perfect day for a run. Mid 50's, light breeze, actually had to take off my long sleeve jersey!
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!
