Lunchtime Run with Mike... First time back on the road in a week!
I was feeling much better today, so I decided to try a run and see how it went. Well, it went ok. Had to ask Mike to roll the pace back a bit because I still had a bit of crap in my lungs, but still had a good run. We finished miles in 8:19, 8:05, 8:53, 8:14, 8:19, 8:22 min/mile, finishing the 6.15 mile run in 51:23.
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!
