Marquette Half Marathon 9-1-12 - come run with me

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, September 01, 2012

I did this with my cell phone video camera so it is pretty wobbly in spots but I had alot of fun making this... come run a Half Marathon with me! Video Length- 6:23

I didnt really plan on doing this but i videoed the race start then started shooting some parts of the race. Then i got the idea of actually putting something together to share so this was totally off the cuff.

You may want to adjust your volume, the music seems to be a little loud and i couldn't figure out how to adjust it but it isnt bad...

NOTE: Mile 7- I high five a friend I met at the UP Northwoods Triathlon in July this year. How cool was it to see her at the race...

The finish segment is a little rough but so was I... cramps and all.. lol... if you turn up the volume at that point, you can hear them call my name out as a finisher...

Enjoy... This was a fun day and sharing the race with you was a pleasant distraction from all of the other stuff going on right now.

I also had such an unexpected surprise, I met someone who was reading my blogs but didnt really comment. I was totally blown away and with my mind somewhat distracted with the work situation, I was taken totally by pleasant surprise. I asked her to leave a comment so I could get in touch with her and send her a goodie. Hey- Thanks for the support and all the encouraging feedback, I really appreciate you.....

    How totally cool that you got to meet WonderWoman! I LOVE meeting fellow sparkers at active events. It's like we share this incredible secret to success that isn't really much of a secret at all... we're TRYING to shout it from the rooftops!

    Love the still pics, and I'm still waiting for the video to load... sometimes the first few loads it takes a while (remember from when I posted a video blog).

    Video was great... alternate career if things don't work out with work, huh? And YES you earned the beef today! Well done!
