Running at Bethany Beach!
We are visiting with Orest and Deb for the weekend at their beach house and so after a trip to the beach in the afternoon, I went for a 5 mile run that I missed this morning. Once again, not running at home/work and I have a GREAT run. Got in a bit over 5 miles and other than scaring some woman when I asked for directions, everything went really well. Overall, I averaged 7:51 min/mile for the 5.09 mile run, with miles in 7:46, 7:48, 7:55, 7:51 and 7:59. Going golfing in the morning, so that should be fun!
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!
