It's not too late to DOUGH-NATE

The Doughman is this Saturday. This is a competitive 4 person eating/running/biking/aquatic event relay. Last year, the team I'm on, Victorious Secret took it to the boys and finished 3rd overall out of 70 teams! We're all back this year to claim our victory.

It's not been without challenges - they didn't tell us the food until Monday night, so we weren't able to practice like last year. One of our teammates moved to Boulder (don't worry, she is flying in Friday night). And we had a frenzy of emails yesterday trying to determine who was doing which leg. Our vegetarian even offered to eat meat for the race if necessary. That's how serious we all are.

The other wrench is this year they have time bonuses for the amount of money raised. 1 minute, 2 minute and 6 minute headstarts! We've raised enough for the 2 minute headstart, but know for a fact that other's have raised enough for the 6 minute headstart. If you want to help us out, please click this link!

Also, it's my birthday. What better way to wish me a happy birthday then by giving a little dough to worthy causes?

And one other thing - Marty got roped into a team and they are GOOD. Lucky for us, they haven't raised any money (slackers), but I think we may need that 6 minutes to beat their team!
