#1 reason for running on Saturday - $31 raised for the YMCA summer camps

And as a bonus, here are a few mores stats about the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign:
$150 donation provides one week of day camp at Westside YMCA
$500 donation provides one week of overnight camp at Camp Takatoka
$1200 donation one year of sponsorship of the GO program for one student
$3,695,236 = YMCA provided to support families in the Tulsa area in 2010


  1. Some impressive numbers. I like 72,746. I can't count that high. 5 is amazing. (are you sure it was not 5 quarters?) Maybe that's why you needed 2.4--to wash 5 down. Most impressive is zero. I bet 250 others had at least 1.

  2. I too was amazed at zero. I still look every morning just to make sure. I can only credit good fitting shoes from Runners World.

    And please don't judge my love for a good PBJ.
