Spinervals Big Gear Strength, OUCH!
Betsy met me at NRL after the postdoc poster session to give me Cole so she could get to track practice, so Cole and I came home and enjoyed a Man's Evening! After a bit of playing and dinner and then bed time, I hopped on the bike for Spinerval's Big Gear Strength workout, a series of efforts, both standing and seated, all in the hardest gear ratio, along with some squats. Wow what a rough workout.
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!
