    Riding the San Jose Half Marathon (video)

    I was recruited by Greg Hutchinson to be a rider at the San Jose 1/2 Marathon. I carried a Fox Sports Network cameraman on the back of my bike as we followed the lead runners in a very quick race.



    First time shooting with the tiny Flip Video Camera... http://www.theflip.com/products_flip_ultra.shtml

    Not a bad little camera. Good audio, too.

    How was it with the camera-man? Hard to keep everything nice and smooth at low-speed with a guy hanging off the back?

    It wasn't too bad. The camera hit me in the back of the head a few times. I was told I did an excellent job.
    I should have used my K75C. Would have been a bit smoother at slow speeds.

    It sounds like it could be a lot of fun, but also a lot of work at the same time. I would have been so self-consciousby the end I would have been exhausted from concentration.

    Thanks for posting the video.
