Lunchtime Run with Mike P at Bolling.
Two days in a row for Bolling, and with the showers closed I believe this is going to become a new trend! So I have officially added it as a favorite route and today was a PR. Overall, we set a good pace in the light rain, finishing in 49:18 for the 6.33 miles, finishing with a 7:47 min/mile pace. Good run, great company and good fun...
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!
