Lunchtime run with Mike.
Well after my extended European business trip and a week to get back into the swing of things, I finally got out for a run with Mike P. We went out nice and easy with the other Mike, picking up the pace around Mile 3. Kept going around the 8 min/mile pace the rest of the way, finishing with a time of 51:18. For a recovery run, just what the doctor ordered. I did get a twing of pain in my left knee on the way down the hill, but that righted itself by the end. Overall it was a decent run the day before track work tomorrow.
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!
