Afternoon run with the little guy
I got home from work today and grabbed the little guy and the stroller and set off for an easy 4 miler. Had to take a couple min throughout the run to help Cole figure out how to open his Easter egg, but otherwise had a good solid run! In fact even got the benefit of Cole cheering me on the whole way! GOO DADA GO GO GO GO GOOOOO! So fun! Overall, finished with a 7:42 min/mile pace pushing the stroller, not too bad since I was pushing the little guy!!!
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!
