Early morning run
Heading over to NIST today, so I had to catch an early morning bus to use the metro. Therefore, I had to get up at 5:45 AM to get out and get on the road if I was going to get a run in. I decided to use my mizuno's again, big mistake, I really don't like those shoes. Anyway, because of time constraints I only got 3 miles in and felt tight and pretty crappy during all of that anyway. Finished with miles in 8:08, 8:03 and 8:06 min. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
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!
