'Recovery' Run with the Baby Boy!
Got going with the intention of getting in an easy 4 miler, keeping an easy 8:30 min/mile pace... but errr... didn't happen. Despite the stroller, my continued attempts to slow myself down, somehow I kept finding myself turning in miles in just under 8 mins. Cole seemed to love it though! He was giggling the whole time, taking in all the sights as we ran through the streets! We had a great time and got home in a great mood, just in time for din din and a shower! It was rough getting used to the BOB stroller, but now, it is so much fun to hit the road with Cole!!! So tomorrow has an easy track 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!
