Angelo: Which is another topic that would be fun to talk about. ‘Cause I don’t know if you’ve done it, but I’ve done the I Think I Can Campaign? Which I don’t know when that one started, but I remember the first year I did two I Think I Can Campaigns, and one of the them—the first one I did, I think—was probably the dumbest one I did which was: I agreed to run a marathon.
Angelo and Abby: [Laughter]
Angelo: So I raised money and I spent the entire year like training for the marathon and then I actually raised a great amount of money which was super awesome—that people donated. And then I ran the San Francisco Marathon, which was really cool ‘cause, you know, my wife was there to support me and a bunch of my friends but then like ATC’s staff was there at the marathon at the finish line, like, with signs and everything. And my wife made all these t-shirts that are like “Run, Angelo, run!” and they were all wearing it. And I have pictures…so it’s like, you know, that’s the side—outside of outreach, outside of the work—that is just that people are so supportive of each other out here.
And then the second time I did it, I was much smarter and decided on a much easier task which was just growing my hair out. I grew my hair out and every time somebody would donate I would let my hair grow longer and longer and longer with the end-goal of then cutting it all off and donating my hair, which was, you know, much easier than running marathon.

Abby: Angelo – you’re a superstar. Gosh darn. [Laughter] You really are.
Angelo: But yeah, if you ever do an I Think I Can Campaign, don’t do a marathon. Unless you really want to. But it’s painful.
