Lunchtime run at Bolling with Mike P and Josh A.
Took off after a meeting over to Bolling to get in a lunchtime 10k run while the weather was still 'cool', at least in comparison to the last few days. Got started and felt ok, not great, but ok and once again construction slightly changed our running path. Not too terrible, but we took it realy easy at the start, only putting in 8:30 min/mile for the four miles before picking up the pace to about 8:05 or so. None of us really felt too fantastic, but still finished strong, with the final quarter mile at an 8:03 min/mile pace. Glad to get in a run period with how things went earlier this week. Am starting to figure out my race schedule... more to come soon.
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!
