Saturday Ride with Josh A! After planning a couple times for a weekend ride that fell apart, Josh A and I finally got together for a morning ride. I got started with a flat tire on my front wheel that I had to fix before we got going, but other than that things went pretty well. Headed down and did Mitchell Rd, Rose Hill, Bumpy Oak and then the Indian Head Rail Trail before heading home. Felt really good the whole way, despite a pretty stiff breeze. Great ride.
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!
