Mountain Biking with Alex at Rosaryville.
Didn't feel so hot today and WOW was it muddy. Did I mention it was muddy? There was a bit of mud. You getting the point? Yeah, that 'little' rain storm I got caught running in yesterday? Yeah, it had a second laugh at my expense. Anyway, it was still a really good ride. Got in the full loop plus the technical section. Overall, finished at 9.1 mph, slowed from the typical 10 mph.
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!
