Harvest Half Marathon in Calgary - the headcam movie

Hi All,

I'm yet to start writing up my race report, but couldn't wait to share the headcam movie I've just finished editing. Enjoy!

Nice. I saw that linked at the Harvest Half's facebook page today.

Lot of familiar sights in that video, covers most of my everyday running routes.

Movei was great, got a great shot of my wife directing you, then going up the hill with the girls chearing with noise makers, but then you cut out at the bathrooms at the top of the hill where I was... :( :( and cut in again at the bottom of the hill turning towards the water station.. Oh well, no fame for me..lol

Great job at your PB and great views. I've run the Harvest Half twice and loved it, but I have not been running much so opted out and we sold our bibs this year. Next year for sure...

Sorry I missed you! I had 50 minutes to edit down to fit the music. I do have you on film though.

Wahoo, I'm a star..lol
No worries, I'm just having fun. It was a really cool perspective of the race, and one I had not seen before. I've either run in the race, volunteered as a bag check person, or stayed home. So, I got to see the fastest people, then the ones I normally run with (the mid packers always jostling for space on the pathways) and the slower runners who probably show the most determination of them all. It was an eye opener to see it in such a light.

I'll have to do course marshalling more I think.
