Run with Jon Smith after work!
Jon Smith is back in town again for a Environmental Law meeting and is staying with us! So after picking him up after work, we headed home and after playing with Cole, we got changed and hit the road for a quick 4 miler. We got off at a pretty good pace, finishing the miles in 8:10, 7:56, 7:57 then 8:00, with a total time of 32:22 for the 4.04 miles. Nice to catch up with Jon and have a running partner for a bit. I think we will be out for another run tomorrow after work as well.
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!
