About a week ago, Running Times posted a "welcome-to-Winter" video that Joel Wolpert filmed here in Boulder back in mid-December. Joel was in town for a few days and was extremely lucky to be here for the first (and almost only) little snowfall of the season. I am very impressed with the nice 10min clip that Joel was able to put together with nothing more than a stedi-cam and a tripod to assist him and his camera. Great work, Joel! The video basically showcases my daily training grounds and is a rare instance of making them look almost as good as reality.
Joel also makes a concerted effort to include local bands in his videos, so I was happy to suggest Paper Bird and The Lumineers. Jocelyn and I have seen Paper Bird open for other acts (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros) and one of Jocelyn's law school friends was kind enough to invite us to this house party where these clips of The Lumineers were recorded. Good stuff all around, and I think Joel did an excellent job of meshing the music with the running.
I know I'm about a week late with posting this, but I was back in Nebraska visiting my folks for the Christmas holiday this past week, and, well, the Interwebs still aren't very abundant where I grew up.
