Ever catch a race finish on video?
This video is a real gem. I had finished the race and was waiting about 100 yards from the finish line, camera in hand, wanting to catch Emily crossing the line in her longest race to date. I saw her coming when she was about 200 yards from the finish line, so I turned and ran as fast as I could to the timing mats, turned back around, and she was literally on top of me. I couldn't believe how fast she was running and you can hear me say so. I didn't realize until I watched the video that I was totally wandering around the finish area and should have stayed outside the fences, but nobody said anything to me about it. This was Emily's target race for the year and she did a great job, especially after having a baby just 9 months prior. That reminds me, she actually did a triathlon when she was pregnant and didn't know it yet. Mom power!
I've been in contact with some important guys at Apple and we will be handed a cool windfall pretty soon. They are triathletes and love the show, and that includes all that you, the listeners, do to help out. This show isn't about me, it's about the lifestyle. That includes all of us! Emails, comments, audio clips, it all comes together to make for a great show that everybody enjoys. Thanks again and keep on tri'n!
BTW, I recommended to them several shows that anybody that cycles would like: Bike Talk, Bikescape, and Cycling Insider. Check them out yourself if you have time. Cycling Insider is a real riot. Matt Da-mon!!!
