And now for a Q&A about the video/marathon. I interviewed myself.
Who directed this wonderful video?
The same person who gave us Sarah Mclachlan's commercial for battered animals, of course. Slow motion shots of dogs and cats, with her final plea at the end? Genius!
About the slow motion shots. A bit much?
I was hoping for the Baywatch effect. Slow motion running always worked for them. I'll try anything at this point. Marathon is this Sunday and I have around $1,500 left to fund raise. Yikes.
Yeah, it's coming up. Are you ready to run the 26.2 miles?
Yes, I feel great! Can't wait!
What happens if you don't raise the $3,500 for Fred's Team?
Anything I don't raise gets charged to my credit card. There goes my first paycheck! haha
Why are your running for charity?
My mother died of breast cancer twelve years ago. I was 18 years old. I've been missing her lately and wanted to do something in her honor. Raising money for cancer research makes me feel like I can play a part in finding a cure. For more details, check out previous posts I've written: Part One and Part Two.
Anything else you want to say?
