Treadmill Track Workout.
I forgot my running pants today, so I decided to try to do the track workout at the gym on the treadmill instead. I guess I overestimated my abilities, because I started off trying to do a 6 min/mile and had to quit after 2x800s. Teach me to shoot for the stars eh? Crap workout for a crap day.
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!
