Quick run between experiments
Had an hour to wait for an experiment to finish, so I decided to hop over to the gym for a quick run around base in the interim. Felt pretty good, but had to do two laps around to get in >4 miles and also had an issue with the GPS not recording for the first 0.45 miles. However, finished with a pace of about 7:49 min/mile overall, this despite the insane winds along the waterfront.
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!
