Mountain Biking with Joe.
So after discussing the idea of going for a bit, Joe and I finally got out to hit the trail together, heading over to Cedarville for a spin on the blue trail first thing this morning. Got out fairly early and got going. Joe hadn't been for a few years, so I was prepped for a rough ride getting his legs under him, but he didn't need much time at all. Got going and found out that alot of log crossing had been added. Felt pretty good, had a great ride and looking forward to going again!
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!
