Lunchtime run with Mike P at Bolling
Well NRL officially has closed the shower room in the gym, so no more running from NRL until it reopens. Still wanting to get a run in, Mike and I went over to Bolling for our lunchtime run. We did the six mile loop that I have been doing the last few times I went to Bolling and it went pretty well, finishing the 6 1/3 mile loop in 50:43 for a 8 min/mile average. Super windy and fairly chilly, but otherwise great weather for running!
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!
