Morning run before work.
SOOOOO exhausted this morning. Actually got up at 6 am to get ready for work and it took almost all my energy to just get up and eat breakfast. I had pretty much decided that I was going to wait until lunchtime to go, but then realized I had practice talks at 1, so a lunchtime run wasn't going to happen. Anyway, I decided to get out and just go. Oddly, my run went fairly well, with me finishing miles in 8:07, 8:00, 7:57 and 7:49 min.
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!
