    Just a quick reminder that the auctions are all ending later this evening, in case you were thinking of bidding!

    Thank you SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!

    The auctions ended in the wee hours of the weekend, and in total, I was able to raise $927.52!!!!

    I was pretty happy to see that all the items got bids, but I received additional bids as we neared the weekend, with a few last-minute bidders who bid in the last moments of the auctions.

    The Aeronaut got an amazing 13 bids, and the Synapse got 14 bids!

    I am over-the-moon happy. If you participated in bidding (even if you weren't the highest bidder), thank you.

    I have formally transferred all $927.52 to the ASPCA, and got a confirmation from my team leader that they received it. I am now just a few hundred dollars shy of goal, but with almost a month to go I know I won't have any problem reaching it.

    Again, thank you so very much.

    OK so it's been a few weeks, but it's been a CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY month... we moved apartments and squeezed in a half marathon and helping put on a scavenger hunt/amazing race-type event down in Disneyland (http://www.mouseadventure.com), PLUS we had a major software release go out the door at work... all in the span of a month. We're all moved into the new place but we still have boxes up the wazoo and we still need to buy living room furniture!

    In the meantime, i wanted to thank everyone for bidding on the auctions or helping donate to Team ASPCA. I'm attaching a photo from the race, where I shaved 11 minutes off my previous record to hit a new PR of 1:57:26. Woot!
