Running/Fundraising Update From James: Two Marathons in One Day - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Running/Fundraising Update From James: Two Marathons in One Day

    Two marathons in one day? What?

    Here's an update from James on his running and fundraising work:

    Well, Boston 2 Big Sur was such a success, I am going to try something even more challenging. On December 4, 2011, I will be running the CIM 2 Las Vegas Challenge - two marathons in one day. It should be fun, crazy and pretty difficult.

    CIM 2 Las Vegas Challenge | Forno Bravo Charity Work

    On December 4, 2011, I will be racing the California International Marathon (CIM) in Sacramento in the morning, and then flying to Las Vegas to race the Rock-and-Roll Marathon that evening (the world's largest nighttime running event. That equals 52.4 miles by foot and 550 miles by airplane in a 12-hour period.

    In addition to the mileage, the CIM 2 Las Vegas Challenge brings a couple of new hurdles. In order to catch the flight from Sacramento, we need to run CIM at a pretty fast 3:15 pace. For the second marathon, we not only have to stretch out some tired legs, but we also need to finish the race in less than 4:30 (or be swept off the course). The Las Vegas Marathon has a cut-off time because we will be racing on the Strip, and we need to give the casinos their road back.

    This might be tough.

    As always, Forno Bravo is a recognized fundraiser for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, and we are helping them reach their mission of curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.

    I met with members of the Reeve Foundation, along with other fundraisers and some great people who have been helped by the foundation, at the Boston Marathon this spring, and it feels really good to be a part of this community.

    We will continue offering "Team Reeves" versions of the Forno Bravo eBook Series for $10 each, and Forno Bravo will match all contributions. Of course the standard free version of each of our five eBooks will continue to be available.

    Forno Bravo has raised thousands of dollars for charity over the past few years, and we are excited about this new opportunity.
