The Decision

After doing some serious thinking, it is time to announce my decision.

If this makes no sense to you, read this.

I found that it is difficult to make a video with a puppy.  I had to start over twice because Bailey interrupted filming.  I should have saved the screw ups for an outtakes roll.  Whoops!

And now, if you want to see a decent video, check out the first two minutes of Rio.  Professional Pet Groomer and Lawn Mower, Jon at SwiCycloRun, did all of the feather and fur work and the movie looks like it is going to be awesome!  Go check out his give away and sign up to win!

    LOL.. But you want to win CHAMPIONSHIPS, right? ha ha You are so lucky to get to compete with such amazing athletes – I am jealous!

  2. Matt Smith

    Good call. I think that’s the best move. You’re going to have a blast on that run too!

    You know the general public may not understand but it is about winning championships!

    I can’t see the video at work. Now I am all in suspense!!

    LOL now that was hilarious. The 13.1 it is 🙂 It will be a 3-for 🙂

    I am sure Ohio can grant you a temporary pass for the weekend… then it’s back to Michigan with you!

    i feel like you can compete there in toledo. i hope you’re happy with your decision.

    getting all fancy with the espn bits. trying to 1-up me?

    i’ve decided i don’t want to win a rio poster. i want to win a job making sweet movies like rio and such. hire me jon. i can barely draw in ms paint, but clearly i should work in the pixar movie industry.

    Good choice! I have read more and more about early season marathons doing a lot more damage than good when there is a bigger race later on in the season.

    Thanks for the plug!

    I would consider that option (think charlie sheen voice) “Winning”

  9. Spike

    So long as you get a max contract…you can go there and not South Beach.

    Oh my gosh, that’s hysterical. Good choice to run the half. Between the three of you being there… sounds like trouble! 🙂

    I would have loved to have seen the puppy outtakes. 🙂

    […] No fancy video this time, but I have finally decided to register for the Grand Rapids Marathon on October 16th.  I have been 95% sure I was going to run it. My biggest decision was whether or not to take the plunge and sign up for Lifetime Entry.  For $725, you get entry into every race as long as it exists.  As far as I know, this is the only race in the country that offers such a perk.  As tempting as it is, and knowing that I will probably continue to do the race each year I don’t have anything going on, I decided to pass. On second though, after talking to Jennie and her encouragement of, “I’m in the Lifetime Entry boat now” (and after finding out you get an extra special shirt each year), I took the plunge.  I am now a Lifetime Entrant for the Grand Rapids Marathon.  I just have to do the half or full marathon at least 6 more time and it will pay for itself.
