On Friday I headed over to Panorma Village, BC and met up with Videographer Cyrus. The plan was to shoot some video for Public Service Announcements (PSA's) and a "pitch" video for the talk shows. The top of our list was Letterman, Oprah and Springer. On Friday afternoon we did some Q and A's then on Saturday we headed down to the road leading up to the village. Out of the back of a car, with his dad driving, Cyrus took clip after clip of me running up and down the road. We decided to go to a local golf course and get a few shots of me explaining about the hydration pack and the Garmin GPS. As I was pointing out some of the features of the watch, a golf ball whizzed past my head and rested under a tree. That would have been a good You Tube moment.

Today's marathon was very pleasent. I still have a niggle in the top of my right thigh and I didn't want to push things so, walking it was. It was overcast and Weatherman Paul stated "Thundershowers throughout the morning with fewer in the afternoon with 40% probability of precipitation". I popped my Glad 3-in-1 rain jacket in a pouch and headed outside. Before leaving the driveway, I sprayed up with OFF. The bugs have been bad the last two weeks and I didn't want the little devils eating me alive. I covered some usual ground, out to Crawford Ranch and back. Along the way I met Sue. She was doing a 32km long run in preparation for the Regina Marathon in September. The kms and hours rolled by and as usual the highlight of the marathon was the ice cream stop at Mackays. They never run out of ice cream!
