You should a need license...

... to operate a video camera.

Seriously, I suck at it, and I never knew I sucked at it.  And it sucks finding out new things I suck at, because I already suck at enough stuff.

I took video of four of the five of my runner buds crossing the finish line (Mattie was just too speedy for me to capture apparently).  Not only does the whole screen bounce around the whole time because I didn't realize jumping up and down while recording wasn't a great idea, but my commentary and weird screaming is a little disturbing.

I also took a video of Rachel at 10 miles, and while there isn't as much jumping, and I managed to keep her in the frame for the whole ten seconds, it's way worse...

I debated whether to put this video on here, because it's weird and a little creepy and even a little inappropriate, but then I thought it was only fair that you all get a glimpse of the real me.  And, I've watched it like 6 times today, and it makes me laugh every time... mostly because of the weird frantic way I asked Rachel how she was doing, and also the seriously dirty laugh I throw out there in the end. 

But in the end, I decided to post it because Rachel has taken about 14 minutes off her PR in two races... she is incredible, and has just really started hitting her stride (when in doubt, go with the pun) this season.  So proud of her.  So go to her blog, and tell her how awesome she is, and how sorry you are that she has to put up with me.

And if you don't want to come read my blog anymore, I understand.

And hey, if you don't want to hear my shrill 7 year old girl voice, watch it with the sound off and check out Rachel in the pink rufflebums!
