Yesterday morning I caught the first train to Boston. I dropped my stuff off to work and jogged over to Castle Island for my WBZ news video shoot!!
I decided to wear my black Adidas running tights, pink Nike running hoodie and brought shorts and a tank just in case. The person I talked to kind of made it sound like I should wear a summery outfit and warmup clothes over. I was kind of nervous I’d be running outside in summer clothes!
I met up with the WBZ crew and realized that a fellow running club member, Javier, was there too! And I found out, WHEW, I could wear my winter clothes! They were actually glad because they shot some people in more summery clothes last week and they wanted a different shot this time.
We headed over toward the water, and I had to run back and forth. The camera guy got some footage. Before I started running, I asked “Do I just focus on running, or look at the camera?” I was to focus on running. Did they realize that when I focus, I breath like I’m in a Lamaze class trying to breath? So I don’t know if they will actually use that shot!
After my turn, Javier ran a bit. Lastly, we ran together. I felt the most comfortable then because I could just talk to him!
The shoot was quick, an hour total. Then Javier drove me to work!
I got out of Javier’s car and saw a coworker walking to work so I ran over to him and jumped in front of him in a flying starfish pose. Yup, my coworkers love me haha.
The Boston Marathon promotion should be playing at the start of next week and will play up until the marathon! WBZ wanted to show that normal people, not just the elite, run marathons. That we train in all types of weather. That we are all different shapes, sizes, and ages. I think this was a great idea! They might be sending me a clip. If they do, I’ll post it!
Total mileage: 3.5 miles?
Time: Don’t know! I forgot my Garmin
Do you think you could be an actor?
Maybe (I like to think I can do anything if I put my mind to it! But not right now! I think I would get camera shy!
Do you goof around with your coworkers?
Yup. ALL the time!
Do you have a good camera suggestion?
Mine is broken! I want one so I can post more pics on my blog! My iPhone camera isn’t cutting it! And my blog feels bored without pictures!
