another 15 minutes of fame

I was interviewed for the news last night. A reporter came up to me while I was at my running school. Actually she came up to my group and they nominated me (I think they think I'm the spunky youngster). I told the woman I would do it if she wasn't filming me while I was stretching (which she did anyway). Anyway, when we watched last night, I thought they just showed a coach, but today I got several e-mails on my phone from people saying my mom had forwarded "my video". It turns out, they aired more at 11 and then they posted an article and the video on the internet. I'm not going to post it here, but it's out there if you look hard enough. I'll give you a hint, it's on News 14 carolinas.

I'm not too worried about what I said. As my friends have pointed out, many individuals on the news are not very, shall we say, well spoken. I think I did alright. But, man, I didn't realize my accent and facial expressions were so over the top and I could have gone without that close up on the calves.

PS-Julie from OG Runs is on there too. You can just see her water bottles and shoes, but they're pretty cute!
