Feeding the Gumpathon

The Gumpathon:
"On 10 September 2010 six runners will set out from New York with the intention of reaching LA by 11 November. In a unique challenge which stretches 3,530 miles, six brave guys will be running to raise a substantial amount of money for injured service men and women returning from current conflict.

Each runner will cover 16-22 miles per day in relay formation, completing up to 88 miles a day and the equivalent of 34 marathons each over the two month period. The team will run continuously for a 63 day period covering 4 time zones, 3 deserts and 10 mountain ranges."

I had the honor of giving the chef, Danny, a break and making them breakfast. I made chili casserole, scrambled eggs with hollandaise, bacon, fruit and well....I picked up some fantastic donuts from a local shop.

That's a fantastic thing to do! When my husband was in the hospital a few years back there was a special spinal cord injury wing and it was filled with service men and women. Broke my heart to see the hardships they and their families were going through.
