Keep on …

Hello, I’ve been running 10 kilometers. Along with 30,000 other people. And of course such an opportunity means video – does it not?

Charleston has been holding the annual event of the Cooper River Bridge Run since 1978, and this year something inspired me to take part. This years race was on Saturday just gone -5th April – and that meant an early alarm call to get to the start for 8am, taking my video camera with me in my pocket, shooting stuff for work (of which you can see here), and of course made my own short video of the day, viewable below.

With special thanks to Mike, Melissa & Russell (who appear briefly!) for giving me a ride in their car and running with me.

  1. […] First up is Geoff who carried his video camera through the race and put together this piece.  You must be at the main page to view the video, not on the specific post. […]

    Years ago when I was a staff photographer for a newspaper in San Diego, I was leaving for a Track and Field event and the editor asked me to get the start AND the finish of the 100 yard race.

    “Huh?” I said!

    “Take a shortcut,” he suggested.

    I see you accomplished the task. Good video.

  3. I’m tired just watching that.
    Training for next year yet?

    Love the way, you ‘wooo’ like an american when you cross the finish line. Equally, disturbed by ‘pocket cam’ never a good idea
