Hangover and running… NOT FUN.
So we had a bar day for my buddy Nabil yesterday as his last free day preparenthood. After much drinking, some petron and lots of football, Betsy drove me home. This of course led to a really terrible nights sleep and a twisted stomach. I now remember why I don't go out drinking anymore. Anyway, we went for a short 4 mile run this morning, not worry about the pace at all. Pushing Cole added an extra level of difficulty and I did have to stop to take off my long sleeve jersey at one point and then my running pants at another. However, I definitely feel much better now that I went and got shower in, so all in all it was still a good idea.
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!
