Light easy run with Betsy
After what turned out to be a long day yesterday and a late night last night, Betsy and I got up early and got out for a run. We didn't really care to do much, just wanted to loosen up and get out of the house. Got out for an easy 3 miler putting in easy miles at 8:46, 8:14, 8:15, and then finishing the final 1/10th of a mile at an 8:33 min/mile pace. Once again, Atlanta is really hot...
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!
