9/14-Late Run with Mike P.
Ugh... rough run. Felt ok, but never great. Once again this stupid heart rate monitor started jumping all over the place, don't know what is going on with it. Either way, had an ok run, kept a nice easy pace, right around 8:20, finishing in 50:51 before getting back to stretch out in the shower and head back to work. Looking forward to the next 1/2 marathon this weekend.
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!
