Success! Toenail #1 of 3 has decided to longer be a part of me. Thanks for all the miles over the years, dear toenail

Being my first time riding in first class, I decided to take some pictures of the food to show off to anyone willing to listen.  First picture has the menu, but just in case you can’t read through the blurriness:

  1. Appetizer Salad:
    Curried Quinoa Salad with Grilled Shrimp 
    Warm Dinner Roll
  2. Choice of Entrees:

    Huli Huli Chicken Breast
    Roasted Purple Sweet Potato
    Asian Greens

    - or -

    Pecan Crusted Wild Alaskan Salmon With Fennel Bacon Butter
    Mashed Potatoes
    Green Been Bundle
    (my choice - you had me at bacon.  And again at butter)
  3. Dessert
    Kona Gold Macadamia Nut Kona Coffee Cake 

Thank you Alaska Airlines for tempting me with a $175 first class upgrade when I already had a $100 voucher.  You win.

5th overall for my age group.  But more importantly, did Batman finish in 7th place?

Thank you Steph!

Another after-race donation from former (aww, sad!) Team Challenge teammate and mentor, Steph!  While we were all sad to not have Steph on the team this season, she is going to culinary school so as long as she brings us delicious food every once in a while, everybody wins! 

At this rate, I may raise more money after the race than before…  who’s next?

Thank you Aunt Kate!

I can’t believe I missed this before the race, but my Aunt Kate (and Uncle Jim I presume) made a generous donation of $75 to my fundraising to bring my running total up to $2,692!  Or, in other words, just over $100 for every mile I ran today.  

You guys are awesome!

Still accepting donations for the next week or two so get yours in now before its too late!

Thank you Linda!

Another very generous donation today from Linda Huse for $100!  Thank you thank you thank you thank you!  Linda’s donation is point to remind everyone that 75 cents of every single dollar you donate, goes directly to CCFA to fund patient programs and research to help increase the quality of life for those who live with Crohn’s and colitis.  

Thanks again Linda! 

Thank you Lisa! (And not Dave)

A couple weeks ago, I mistakenly assumed that Dave’s donation included Lisa too, but Team Capretto never ceases to amaze with another donation today to bring their total to a nice, round, $100.  As Lisa so eloquently puts it "Run, Billy, run!  So I don’t have to!" 

Make sure you check out the Capretto family dog, Rocco, who was featured on CNN recently!
