Morning run with the Family.
I am working on a mask for a lithographic patterned array for work, so I decided to stay home with Cole and work on this while Betsy drove Alex to the airport to save Cole from having to get in the car for ANOTHER long car ride. Got a good deal done before Cole got up, then was able to actually keep working while he ate and then played. Once Betsy got home, we took a quick break and hopped out with the Bob for a nice 4 mile run. Got off to a good start, putting in miles in 8:11, 8:01, 8:02 adn then 7:45 min/mile! Felt pretty good and it was a perfect sunny day for a run.
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!
