Morning 'long' run with Betsy and Cole.
Well, funny how the definition of 'long run' varies depending on the level of running effort that I have been putting in recently. Of course with the reduction in running mileage this month with the recovery from the race season, the trip to Europe, getting sick and the terrible weather recently, I need to take a step back to rebuild some of the endurance again. This morning, Betsy and I got out for our old Marhall Hall 10k route, keeping an 8:23 min/mile pace, being treated to a Alex Sink prepared Cappucino upon our return! Good times! And the Pats are on Sunday NIGHT FOOTBALL!!!
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!
