What Did You Think of The Shoes?

Usually when I buy brand new running shoes, it takes a few runs for them to start breaking in. With these, I never had that problem. They felt good from the start. That helps me out since I run more like a penguin than a gazelle.


I honestly never thought about the shoes the entire time. Even right now when I think back about it nothing comes to mind. So I guess that means they did their job perfectly.


The shoes had a great cushion system that I found to be very helpful in long distances. I want to start training for marathons and this is going to be a huge issue.


Best Part of The Trip?

Sleeping in the car on the way back from Boston. Three days straight of running, filming, and editing into the night had made me a kind of tired I had never experienced before.


Boston, to see the finish line for one of the greatest marathons in the world was so amazing.


Mine had to be in Philly. I went into a bar to get us 3 Philly Cheese Steaks. When in Rome. Anyway, while I was in there, several people were asking me what I was up to. As I explained our story, more and more people gathered around. By the time I walked out the door, the entire bar was shouting their good lucks to me. That was one of those moments the camera didn't capture.

New York, New York

Day 3

on the road

Behind it all it is a lot of hard work. But it has been worth it.

Leg 3 Washington DC

Later in the day we found ourselves in the Capitol and in slightly cooler temperatures. All three of us ended up running a great deal as Barrett and I (Michael) had to chase David around the city. PT Cruisers don't go in grass.

Leg 2 Richmond VA

The journey continues on an absurdly hot day. That's why we didn't encounter any other runners along Monument Ave. I still feel queasy.

This was our first day shooting from our new chase vehicle, the mighty PT Cruiser. Special thanks to Budget Rent a Car for that one.
