Action 295 - Sit Down For An Interview.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I am the luckiest person I know. I am the step to the curb and the light turns green guy. Things in my life just always seem to work out. So it takes a pretty big moment for me to think, "wow, I am SO lucky that this is happening!" Well, today was the day for just such a moment.

There will be many more details to come soon, and I can only say so much right now. But I am free to share that I am going to be part of a documentary featuring myself and several other runners who have changed their lives through health and fitness and, most importantly, are preparing for a shared physical experience in the near future. It is an amazing project and I am still a bit stunned and shocked that I get to be a part of it. Officially, it started today.

Action 295 - Sit Down For An Interview. And I did. After running the Hollywood Half Marathon, I made a quick stop at my friend's house to shower and change, then headed a few miles away and met with the filmmakers. We sat down for what I assumed would be a brief interview... and then we chatted away like old friends for the better part of two hours.

It was surreal, sitting there like a celebrity being asked about my fitness journey. The experience itself stirred up so many emotions, good and bad, but mostly, it felt like a voice fighting its way through all my insecurities and fears and shouting at me through a megaphone, "YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR LIFE AND ARE DOING INCREDIBLE THINGS FOR YOURSELF!"

I am so excited to be part of this project, and I cannot wait to be able to share more information about it with everyone. Stay tuned over the last few weeks, and I promise to keep everyone posted with more details as they become available!

  4. Forget the part about being nervous. You sit down and start chatting with Jennifer and Angela, and suddenly you are two hours into filming and thinking, "oh, wait, I don't want it to be over!"
