Hey Look, I’m in a Magazine

First off, don’t get too excited, it’s not Playdude or whatever.

You see, when I’m not running/exercising, I’m making videos.  I’m a producer/editor/writer/videographer/director/host/etc.  In fact, part of the reason I write this blog is to help keep that creative/writing part of my brain strong – just like we have to exercise our bodies to keep them fit.

I’ve been lucky that at the place I work, we’ve won a ton of awards over the years.  We’ve even won several Emmy’s from the Texas Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.  It’s a team effort, but considering they had 1 nomination and 1 win before I got here, and since then we’ve had 19 nominations and 8 wins, I’d say I brought some luck 😉

Two of em.

Two of my ladies.

Seriously though, I do enjoy entertaining and educating people, so I enjoy what I do.  I have had offers for jobs offering a lot more money, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to be as creative in those positions, so I turned them down.  Anyway, a local magazine put our picture in this month’s issue because we recently won two more Emmy’s a few months ago.

I was hoping for the centerfold.

You can enlarge the image by clicking on it.  If you do and then decide to print it out, you can send it to me and I will autograph it and mail it back.  Of course, I’m just kidding about that previous sentence.  Please don’t do that.  Haha!

What about you?  What do you do to be creative?  Do you incorporate your line of work into exercise somehow?  Have you ever been in Playdude Magazine?

Running Rules

So I came across this article and thought it had a lot of good points.  I may not agree with every little thing, but for the most part, I’m on board with it.  Check it out if you want, it’s called The 25 Golden Rules of Running

Since I gave you an assignment to read, then that means I don’t have to write much more here.  Good thing cause it’s Friday quitting time and my brain is about fried.  I’ll just record for posterity here that last nights sweaty 4 miler was tough.  Right now Thursday evening runs are the culmination of 6 straight days of working out – usually twice a day.  It didn’t help any that it was windy and part of my course ran through Arbor Hills Nature Preserve.  As you can tell by the name, there are hills in that park.  Yes, there are hills.

No matter, today is rest day, and I need it.  Back on the streets in the early AM.  Hope to see you out there.

200 days till the Disney Dopey Challenge!
