Running through the snow and puddles.
Well Mike and I decided to head out to the trail, which Mike said wasn't too bad. However, it wasn't too great either. For the first time in a long time had a couple miles in surplus of 9 min/mile, basically because of the poor footing on the snow and ice. Of course by the end my feet were SOAKED! In fact my sneakers are still soaked wet at 8:00 PM! Either way it was good to get out 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!
