Swimming at Bolling with the Family!
Well Betsy got to head into the lap pool first, while Cole and I (after a quick pee on the locker room floor) got some time in the baby and kids pool. After Betsy finished, I got in 2000 yards, finishing six 133's in 2:12, 2:20, 2:19, 2:18, 2:16 and 2:20 min. After that, I put in 6 200's in 3:36, 3:37, 3:43, 3:45, 3:48 and 3:47. Good workout.
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!
