Morning run with Cole
Got out for an easy run with Cole this morning, figured on going 4 or 5 miles to loosen up for the race tomorrow. Felt pretty tight to start and had an issue with the front wheel alignment on the jogging stroller being a bit off, but got going into a rhythm and kept a nice easy pace. Had a couple direction changes due to the fact that I couldn't avoid all the dogs, but that was ok, ended up getting me out for a 5 miler, keeping a 8:23 min/mile pace.
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!
