Afternoon run with Cole!
Got up really early again this morning (5:30am) to get in to work to get started early so I could get home sooner. With Betsy not feeling so hot yesterday, I wanted to get as much work done early so I could take the boy off her hands for a little bit to give her a break. So I got home around 2PM, ate some lunch and grabbed the boy, the jogging stroller and his coat and hit the road. Felt pretty tight and sore most of the way and can feel some blisters coming in. Need to be sure to get some mole skin ready for tomorrow's 20 miler! Hopefully I will be less sore tomorrow too!
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!
