Ugh, more time on the treadmill
Got up before work to hop on the treadmill for a quick 4 miler. Of course it was during that run that I found out that East Capitol St was closed, so traffic was going to be terrible. Thus, my morning was modified to a telecommute morning! Anyway, just wanted to take the run nice anad easy, so I put in a mile at 8:34 min/mile and then the second 3 at 8:00 min/mile. Really didn't feel motivated, so I was happy to finish that!
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!
