Lunchtime run with Mike P, Bill and Steve
Got out for a lunchtime run with the guys, kept it easy finishing with a pace of 8:14, with Bill and Steve turning around at mile 2, while we continued on for the full 10k loop. Felt ok, started laboring a bit towards the end, but overall felt ok. It was an absolutely perfect day, couldn't possibly hope for a nicer day to 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!
