Miwok 100k Videos

These videos were shot by JB Benna AKA "Journeyfilm". In two parts and of great quality. The first video shows the start and the leaders coming through the first aid station. The second video captures the weather, mud and lushness of Mt. Tam's trails. The last 30 seconds made me wish it was last Saturday all over again. The guy in the green jacket and white visor who you see for most of the video is Hal Koerner from Ashland, Oregon - current WS champ.

I'm actually in it and I was able to do a little video analysis of myself: bring down arms, lose more weight and purchase larger race ready shorts.

  2. I may just have to do Speedos, less material no chaffing. Large shorts chafe, small shorts chafe despite less material. I may have to resort to wearing them whatchamacallit's, those tights but they are short? Anyway that's the plan.

  5. Did you factor in that the camera adds 10 lbs?

  7. great, great videos rick - thanks for sharing. takes me right back to that cold, wet day i'll have to remind myself of when complaining about a San Francisco "heat wave". bonus! i made the clip at about 2:47 at the TV aid station cheering in the lead runners. i agree with olga, running skirts for men - who's going to run with that idea and say they were the pioneer? seriously, they're fantastic.

  8. Fun video. I am signing up for it next year for sure.

    I like Olgas idea. Someone should start making man skirts.

    Congrats again for finishing strong in this race. I really admire you!

    Thanks too for those priceless insights you've shared on my blog.

    God bless.
