Running on the Treadmill.
Got my lifting workout in this morning and decided that with the high heat index coming later on and two new students starting, I decided to get in a short run after lifting. Did arms and shoulders, then got on the treadmill and put in 3 miles at an easy 8 min/mile pace. Felt ok, nice to get a run in. Looking forward to the cooler weather we are expected to get tomorrow!
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!
