Run on the new treadmill
Betsy found a person who wanted to trade a treadmill for our elliptical machine, so after the switcheroo on Monday, I decided to give it a whirl tonight. I put out an easy 4 mile run at a 7:30 min/mile pace. Felt pretty good and like the new addition, pretty comfortable, simple display, only wish it had a speed work button, but hey, who'se complainin'!?
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!
