Morning Trainer work with Betsy!
Because the weather was so poor, Betsy and I made the executive decision last night that Track Practice was a no go. Therefore, we got up early this morning and headed downstairs before Cole woke up and got in a trainer workout. Betsy and I decided to do the Spinervals Recharge, and it went really well. Overall it was a good workout, although doesn't make up for having to miss out on track!
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!
