Running with the Boy on Mt Vernon
Betsy has been in dire need of a massage for awhile now, and with her now pregnant, she knew that pretty soon she wouldn't be able to lay on her stomach to get one. So we planned to meet at Mt Vernon so Cole and I could go running while Betsy went and got her massage. Had a reasonable run, Cole eating lunch while I ran, but had to stop a couple times to make sure he ate and then stopped to stretch at the half way mark since I was so tight. Did get to enjoy a fun 20 min or so watching the ducks with Cole afterwards though!
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!
